Disastrous Serres La Batie Day 7

I just finished Day 7 of the Serres La Batie Challenge.  It was a very frustrating race that ended in disaster.  I re-started several times because I started headed in the wrong direction.  The clouds were low so the most I could gain was 2400m.  It was slow going but when I really got going along the ridge and was starting to put the hammer down, I ran into a big cloud.  I tried to dive under it and developed flutter and lost a wing–end of story!

I installed ScribeFire Next on my home computer and inserted these images.  These are about the biggest images that would work.
