Day 3 saw wind during the morning hours from eastern direction again and the EFPT crew decided to continue with another single elimination for the men. The wind conditions were suitable and 10 heats got completed. The top ranked riders of the first double elimination all qualified for the top 16 and the top four riders of the overall EFPT tour ranking are still in this single elimination. Just 9 heats are missing to complete the second single, what can bring a change in the event result and the overall ranking. The first ladies heat got started as well, but had to be cancelled due to the light wind conditions.
