PWC GEMONA, 19TH TO 26TH OF JUNE 2021.

junio 9, 2021

To get the season off to a flying start the Paragliding World Cup will be returning to Gemona in north eastern Italy. Gemona is literally where the plains meet the Alps.

This gives a great mix of truly alpine flying, along ridges and over high pastures, combined with the possibility of turn points and racing out in the flats.The picturesque old town of Gemona is a favourite location with the World Cup, having been a venue in 2016 and 2018, so we are absolutely delighted to be able to keep a promise to reschedule the postponed 2020 event.

This event has an extremely high competitor level. A letter A or B was required for automatic selection, equivalent to a top 20 place in the Super Final! Competing in this all-star event are World/European and Super Final champions along with thirteen pilots who have won a World Cup and eight ladies who have already been on the top spot on the lady’s podium.

Despite the difficult times recently, the World Cup are delighted to welcome a new partner to our flying family: The Chinese Taipei Gliding Sports Association.With a record number of World Cup partners, twenty-three in total, each fielding a team, the team event will be tougher than ever before.

Ozone glider’s team reflects the wealth of experience of Ozone technology along with a fresh new look to the future.
