The 9th edition of the Red Bull X-Alps is once again the world's toughest adventure race.
Starting in Salzburg, the course will cross the borders of 6 countries via 13 Turnpoints before arriving at the finish line in Monaco.

This year our pilots will be flying the new Zeolite in the race. Legendary adventurer and Ozone team pilot, Antoine Girard, says: “This is the ideal sail for vol-biv, without compromise! Easy, agile, powerful, fast and especially ultralight. The takeoff and landings have never been easier. It is a real Swiss army knife for vol-biv. It's a pleasure to carry, and a pleasure to fly. The performance and overall ease of use makes it very difficult to give back after having tested it!” Gavin McClurg, Gaspard Petiot, Nick Neynans, Cody Mittanck, Rodolphe Akl, Thomas Juel Christiensen, Manuel Nübel, Dominika Kasieczko, and Maxime Pinot, are all competing under the ZEOLITE in this year’s race.

Ozone Team Pilots Mitch Riley and Nick Greece, and climbing legend Cedar Wright scored a fantastic day of flying in Northern California. @mitch.riley.84 @nicgreece @cedarwright ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Mitch reports on their recent volcanic mission:
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
"Nick Greece, Cedar Wright and I met up with a pretty simple goal: fly together, have fun and explore a new place. After 5 hours in the air, and over 100km flown the iconic Mount Shasta started to show a leeside convergence and beckon us nearer. Soon we were hooting and hollering with a huge snowy mountain below us and views of Northern California all around. Flying the snowy, glaciated faces of one of the largest potentially active volcanoes in the US will always be a highlight of my flying."

After opening the season with an impressive 162 km declared goal flight, our friends Wayne Seely and Graham Steel have scored another epic day. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Wayne reports:
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
“We had another great weekend In the Cotswolds. Light wind and a good cloud base prediction saw us towing from the Cotswolds, an early start at 11am for myself and Graham Steel ( both flying our trusty Zeno’s ) we started with a 1000m base heading to tp1 that quickly went to blue conditions for 40km but as we approached tp2 we were connected with clouds which gave amazing 5ms climbs to 2000m giving us an easy run back to goal, 105k declared FAI Triangle in just under 5 hrs. Not epic by alpine standards but a good day for the UK”

"I was waiting for that day since a long time! the day with good snow conditions and a very High Cloud base to reach the very top of Belledonne! Taking off from St Hilaire at 1000m I could climb in pretty rough conditions above Dent de Crolles and then glide straight to Belledonne fighting strong headwind that made it pretty tricky!
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
After a very low save I manage to climb in a great thermal really high at 3700m over the snowy peaks! Then my dream came true ; I landed on the Grande Lance de Domène at 2790m for a 800 m ski run!
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Afterward I took off again and made it back home, flying right over the Grand pic of Belledonne! It was so epic!!"

The Paragliding World Cup in Linzhou, China will take place from the 8th to the 15th of June 2019
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
The Taihang Canyon Scenic Area, as the name suggests, is one of the most stunning places to fly with its Grand Canyon style topography of red rock gorges and potential for both mountain and flat land tasks.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
The first Paragliding World Cup to take place in China was in Linzhou in 1997. The next event was in 2010 with pollution levels making it impossible to see the valley floor from launch, many pilots described the experience as like flying inside a ping-pong ball.
For those who had taken part in 2010, the Linzhou they then discovered at the Pre World Cup in 2018 was unrecognizable. The smog was gone, the carved canyons covered in vivid green vegetation were breath taking. Even the noodles were delicious.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Pilots from 28 different countries will be coming to Linzhou from as far afield as Chile, India, Brazil, Nepal, New Zealand and even Belarus to compete in the World Cup. There will also be a lot of new faces. For 32 pilots, this will be their first World Cup.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
The World Cup now has 19 partners, each with a team, making the team competition even more challenging to win.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Keep up with all the action on the PWCA app and the pwca.org website where you can read the live Commentary, follow the pilots on the tracking and keep up with all the scores.
