The World Paramotor Championship (WPC) is the biggest Paramotor competition sanctioned by FAI. Best pilots from all over the World did come to contest for the title of The World Champion. This year, Thailand has been chosen to host the event at Pasak Jolasid Dam in Lopburi.
Despite Thai hot and stormy weather, during 6 competition days stated on 30th april, the organizers managed to run an excellent event with eight tasks covering navigation, economy and precision flying. 60 pilots competed in class PF1 from 14 countries.
Alex Mateos piloted his Viper 4 16m to his third World Championship title.
Alex says: “I don’t have words to describe my joy to become World Champion for the third time! The competition was intense and very tiring with long waiting time between the tasks under hot thai sun. I won 4 from 8 tasks. Despite making a few small mistakes, I finished this championship with a good lead in points, which secured my first position as the scoring system was not the same as usual. Now I am coming back home to France and start preparation for Slalom World Championships in Egypt.
The Ozone team sends a huge congratulations to Alex for his third World Title, and we are very happy to be able to support him and all of the pilots who have chosen Ozone.
Cheers, from all the team!
