PWC ITALY 2018

June 21, 2018

The next Paragliding World Cup will take place in Gemona, Italy from the 24th -30th of June. 

Gemona, in the north east corner of Italy, is widely recognised as a world class paragliding competition venue, having hosted numerous international events. Situated were the Julian Alps hit the plains, it offers both mountainous alpine flying and flatland racing,  

This World Cup is going to be a real battle between the giants of the XC world and the stars of the paragliding racing circuit.

The big distance record holders are used to flying very fast to cover the incredible distances required to claim World records these days.  

The competitions across Europe this spring have provided some great race training. Virtually all the podium winners from the European competitions so far this year will be competing in Gemona!
The pilot quality in this competition is going to be one of the highest we have ever seen with 19 pilots ranked AA. It promises to be an amazing event with 3 Super Final winners taking part, 16 World Cup winners racing across the skies together!

Keep up with all the action on the PWCA App where, in addition to the live Commentary, tracking and scores, you can now see photos of the pilots, the % of leadout points for each pilot and their glide ratio to goal. Visit PWCA.org
