Alps Tour winner, Cristiano Terragni and former European Tour player, Spain’s Carlos Rodiles both signed for great minus 6 opening round. Terragni, 23 year old had his only win in 2011 and so far did not manage to confirm. But this week could change his career.

He fired perfect round today without any dropped shot on the beautiful golf course of 7 Fontaines. The defending champion, Belgium Hugues Johannes who won last edition in 2012, is currently playing on the Challenge Tour and the winner before him in 2011, Marco Crespi is on the main Tour. This Flory Van Donck trophy is a kind of good luck charm for who can grave his name on it.

The leaders are two strokes ahead of French duo, former Challenge Tour player, Alan Bihan and rookie Leo Lespinasse.

Alan Bihan, 31 year old and triple winner on Alps Tour, recorded his best results in 2010 when he had finished in top 5 of Alps Tour ranking. Lespinasse, 19 year old, is playing his first full season on Alps Tour. One stroke back, a group of four players including a man in very good form during past two weeks, Borja Etchart. He just had an excellent week in Madrid where he finished on the second step of the podium and in France a fortnight ago where he recorded a fourth place.
