2014 Paragliding World Cup Superfinal – gone wrong

It is the 7th day of the most prestigious cross country competition of the year, the PWC Superfinal in Pamukkale, Turkey and I believe I'm writing this in the name of all participants. Some already call the event the “Semih-Final”... after the meet director Semih Sayir. Because instead of nice flying and happy landings the event is overshadowed by terrible weather conditions but most importantly by poor organization and terrible communication towards the pilots.

Flugfest Val Gherdeina

Big big up for the Paragliding Club Val Gardena and all their highly motivated members for putting another awesome Flying Festival together! We were lucky with the weather over the weekend! There were lot's of shows going on, I had the chance to jump 6 times from helicopter, twice with wingsuit and 4 times D-bagging my Trickster2 alongside with the basejumper team Turbolenza and other aerial demos.

Hungarian Champion and my 2nd PWC

At the end I managed to win the Hungarian-Ukrainian Open with 148 participants! It was an amazing experience! See overall results here.

Hungarian - Ukrainian Open Task2

Yesterday 62km task was set with huge cylinder radius because widespread cloud cover was expected. Eventually the shade came in...I took off as very first but 130 pilots did not...3 made goal despite huge shady zones on the course! I was 18 km short...Discussion is still going on if the task will be valid or not...

Is this a thermal?

Excellent low-pressure conditions to try my new Enzo2 and set up the speed-system of the Exoceat harness. Right on time, just one day to go till the comp begins in Macedonia :)
