Chrigel Wins X-Alps For 3rd Time, in Record Time
Chrigel Maurer has just completed a legendary performance at the 2013 X-Alps race, finishing in a record 7 days, which is all the more impressive considering that the 2013 course was the longest ever set. Chrigel’s lead grew steadily each day until he was almost 300km ahead of his nearest competitor by the end of the race. His recorded flight line and the resulting tracklog provide an impressive lesson on Alpine flying, with daring crossings through technical terrain and certainly near the maximum possible XC flights for each segment on that day. We are very happy to have been able to support Chrigel for his record-breaking win, and we continue to watch with bated breath as the rest of the pilots make their way through the course. 6 Ozone pilots are in the top 7 spots, and at the time of this writing they are all within 60km of each other! It has been an exciting race with tremendous amounts of impressive flying by all involved.

We wish Chrigel our most sincere congratulations and look forward to welcoming more pilots in goal at Monaco – this news will be updated in the coming days as they arrive.
Cheers from all the Team.
