Happy Ozone Pilots at Colombian Nats / PWC 2011

January 26, 2011









At the recent Colombian PWC, and the Roldanillo Open / Colombian Nationals, many Ozone pilots went home with big smiles.

PWC Roldanillo:

Ozone’s own Russ Ogden took 2nd place overall, and Peter Neuenschwander (formerly test pilot for Swing Paragliders) took 3rd flying an Ozone R10.2. Congrats, guys! At this first PWC,  7 out of the top 10 wings were Ozone Mantra R10.2s.

Because this was the first and last PWC event in the Americas, the new 2011 PWC American Champion has been crowned, and it is Nick Greece of the USA, flying his R10.2. Congratulations Nick, we’re happy to have you on the team. Full results at: www.paraglidingworldcup.org

Roldanillo Paragliding Open:

Just prior to the PWC event was the Roldanillo Paragliding Open, in which Eric Reed of the USA took first place overall flying his R10.2. Seiko Fukuoka Naville was the first place woman, in 9th place overall, which is very impressive. Seiko has rapidly become one of the most accomplished female competition pilots since she started competing with an R10.2 last year.

Colombian Nationals:

The Roldanillo Open also doubled as the Colombian Nationals, where Steban Novoa took top honors flying… yes, you guessed it, his R10.2. Full results.

We’re happy that the 2011 Season has kicked off with such success for Ozone pilots everywhere, and we look forward to hearing back from happy XC pilots and comp winners, as well as everyday fun flyers, throughout the coming season. Have fun, and don’t forget to tell us about your favourite flights.

Cheers from all the Team.
