Acro Game - test event in Organyá

An exciting new type of competition format will be tested this weekend in Organyá! 15 of the best paraglider pilots in the world will be there to battle their way to victory! Classification will take place on Saturday 13th. The next day, only 8 pilots, 1 vs 1, will be competing for the final positions! One pilot will demonstrate a trick to challenge his opponent who then needs to perform the same maneuver to score or loose a point. We are excited to learn more! Good luck for all this weekend!

AcroMax - no valid runs...

Due to the strong north winds throughout the entire weekend, unfortunately no runs were flown at the AcroMax World Tour event in Italy...
All focus turning towards the 2nd World Champs in Annecy!
