RUSH 5 SWEEPS PODIUM IN ZILLERTAL
This weekend at the Zillertal Battle in Mayrhofen, Austria, where EN B wings were de rigeur, Simon Arnold took first overall flying the new Rush 5. He was joined on the podium by Heli Eichholzer and Joachim Oberhauser, who were also flying the Rush 5. Christoph Eder was just behind in 4th overall, flying the Swift 4, and Thomas Weingartner took 7th on the Rush 5, putting five Ozone pilots in the top ten. Full results here.
This was a hotly contested event with big names flying intermediate class wings. Intensely competitive tasks and racing harnesses were the norm. Rush 5 pilots reported that they had a clear advantage in accelerated flight, and commented that the R5 converted energy in a way that is reminiscent of comp wings, climbing when bar was released.
Congrats to the pilots in this event, and to the organizers – it’s great to see intermediate class wings being the focus of a major event!
Cheers from all the Team.
