Bartek wins PF1 Polish Slalom Champion title!

Während der ersten Woche im August haben unsere Ozone Team Piloten am größten internationalen Slalom Wettbewerb 2021 teilgenommen – am Jutrosin Cup. 40 Piloten aus 12 Ländern sind bei diesem Event an den Start gegangen, unter Ihnen die im Ranking best platzierten. Über 5 Tage hinweg sind die Piloten 15 Durchgänge geflogen.

Alex Mateos (Freeride 14) war während des gesamten Wettkampfs ein starker Anführer, und hat alle Durchgänge gewonnen! Somit hat er seinen Titel als Slalom Champion in Jutrosin von 2020 (und all die anderen Slalom Wettbewerbe in der Vergangenheit) erfolgreich verteidigt.

Bartek Nowicki (Freeride 14) und weiter 4 Piloten haben sich einen harten Wettkampf geliefert, und einige Male die Plätze getauscht. Am letzten Tag haben die finalen Rennen dann über die Positionen 2-4 entschieden. Bartek wurde 4ter.

Szymon Winkler wurde mit seinem Freeride 15 in der Kategorie PL1 (Single Trike) 3ter.

Bartek Nowicki berichtet uns:

“It was very long, tiring but fantastic competition!  I am very happy to be at the top of the World ranking but definitely a little bit disappointed that I missed the podium! Obviously, I made too many mistakes during the competition so I have something to improve in next competition! I would like to thank the competition organizer for the beautiful event and my fans for their support!” 

Und Alex Mateos sagt:

“I am very happy to win all the tasks! But I can see that competitors are getting closer! The level of the pilot improved as well as the organization of the slalom events”

Glückwunsch vom gesamten Ozone Team

Ozone Piloten gewinnen mit der neuen Viper 5 die Französischen Meisterschaften

Das berühmte PPG Paar, die Ozone Team Piloten Alex und Marie Mateos, haben die klassischen Französischen Meisterschaften 2021gewonnen. Alex hat sich den Gesamtsieg und damit zum zehnten Mal hintereinander den Titel geholt. Marie wurde Zweite, und somit ist es ihr viertes Jahr auf dem Siegerpodest.

Ein weiteres Mitglied des Französischen Nationalteams – Boris Tysebaert – hat sich in der Single Trike Klasse (PL1) den ersten Platz und den Titel des Französischen Meisters geholt. In der Allgemeinwertung wurde Nicolas Aubert Sechster. Alle Piloten gingen mit ihrer neuen Viper 5 an den Start.

Alex und Marie berichten: „Receiving new wings only two weeks before the competition was a real challenge! But Viper 5 proves to be a perfect competition weapon! It’s features such as high efficiency, wide range of speed, great stability and precise handling are exactly what we need to win classic competition“

Alex sagt: „The Viper 5 is great fun in precision landing thanks to its amazing long flair! High top speed and stability really helped in all navigation tasks“

Da die Wetterbedingungen schwierig waren, musste die Rennleitung während der wenigen fliegbaren Tage viele kurze Durchgänge durchführen um eine gültige Meisterschaft zu erzielen. Insgesamt wurden 10 Durchgänge gewertet. Bei diesem Event waren Spitzenpiloten aus Spanien und Italien am Start.

Alle Ergebnisse: here

Glückwünsche und ein Cheers vom gesamten Ozone Team.

Spanische Slalom Meisterschaft: Bartek Nowicki wird Zweiter

Obwohl die Spanischen Slalom Weltmeisterschaften 2021 abgesagt wurden, gibt es in dieser Saison 2021 doch einige Events, bei denen sich Spitzenpiloten aus den unterschiedlichsten Ländern messen können. Bornos ist einer der gefragten Orte, wo auch im Juni die Spanischen Meisterschaften stattfanden. Zu diesem Anlass kamen mehr als 20 Piloten aus Spanien, Katar, Polen, Holland, Frankreich und Griechenland zusammen.

Bartek berichtet: „Bornos event gave us an opportunity to train and test new equipment. Unfortunately, top French pilots were absent, except Nicolas Aubert.  The big surprised were pilots from Qatar who train a lot every year in Bornos to be able to fly at really high level.   During one week of competition we had strong winds, which allowed to score only 5 tasks.  I was very happy to finished on the 2nd position flying a completely new gear and beat my team mate Nicolas Aubert and Greek pilot Dimitris Koliakos who was 3rd

I am looking forward to the next round in Jutrosin in Poland!“

Glückwünsche vom gesamten Ozone Team.

Ric Womersley gewinnt die Britischen Meisterschaften!

Die British Open PPG Championships2021 haben vom 8.-10.Juli in Winglands Airfield, Lincolnshire stattgefunden.

In der Championship Klasse sind 13, in der Discovery Klasse (eine Art Wegbereiter zum Wettkampffliegen) 7 Piloten an den Start gegangen.

Ric Womersley gewann den Meistertitel 2021 mit seinem Speedster 3, und hat uns Folgendes berichtet:

„The British Open Paramotor Championships follows an endurance format where tasks are briefed at the start of the competition and then we have flying windows throughout to complete as many of these tasks as possible. 

We had a total of 14 hours of flying windows plus a limited fuel FAI triangle task, 4 spot landings and 4 skittle landings. 

With 16 hours of competition flying over 3 days, this was definitely the most flying I have done in any one competition. Flying throughout the day in some very active skies the Speedster 3 performed impeccably. Its speed and stability allowed me to focus on completing as many tasks as possible, covering over 600 km during the competition. The Speedster’s precise handling and incredible glide meant I hit every spot and scored on all of the skittle landing tasks which also won me the precision trophy“ 

Glückwünsche vom gesamten Ozone Team!

Marie und Alex Mateos gewinnen die Französische Meisterschaft 2020

Die Französische Meisterschaft 2020 fand Anfang Oktober in Blois statt. Trotz der Einschränkungen durch die Pandemie und sehr windigem Wetter sind die Piloten 8 Durchgänge geflogen. Marie Mateos flog mit dem Thor 200 und der Viper 4 16, und führte den gesamten Wettkampf hindurch. Ihr stärkster Teil dabei: „Economy“.Alex flog mit dem neuen Polini Thor 202 und der Viper 4 16, gewann den letzten Landewettbewerb, und überholte Marie mit nur 0,25 Punkten!

Alex sagt: “Marie was the first but, on the last task, which was a bowling landing Marie pushed 3 and I pushed 5, which puts me in front of her at 0.25 points, the margin is very small!  I am happy to win the French Champion title again but, at the same time, I am a little sad, because I think Marie deserves this first place more than me!“   

Marie sagt: “I definitely need to practice precision landing in strong winds! I hope in the next French Championships 2021 I have a big chance to be the first!”

Glückwunsch vom gesamten Ozone Team.

Ozone Team wins Slalom Championships

Big Congratulations to the Ozone Team for taking the podium of Spanish Slalom Open Championships which took place last few days in Bornos, Spain. This was one of the biggest slalom competitions of the season with 49 pilots competing from 9 different countries with 7 tasks flown. 

Alex Mateos won flying the Freeride 14 followed by Nicolas Auberts, also flying the Freeride 14 in 2nd place overall.  Alex says: “Everything went well, the training of this year paid off. I wish we could have flown more tasks but the results are there, so I’m very happy!” The big surprise came from new Ozone Team pilot Bartek Nowicki who finished 3rd overall. After flying Dudek for many years, polish pilot Bartek decided to change to the Ozone Freeride this season.  It is a completely different wing to fly, requiring a different technique and style and despite a minimum of training he managed to win the Polish Slalom Championships earlier this year. Thank you Bartek. 

Marie Mateos – the only girl amongst the top level pilots displayed her class once again, leaving behind many pilots who can only dream of getting to her level! Maries says: “This is the first time for me that I am so close to the podium in slalom competition. I am very happy with this result, especially with 7 valid tasks where I finished 4 times in the 3rd position. Nevertheless, I think with more training I can get the podium next time”. Go for it Marie!
