Crazy Alpine XC days

Friday, 20 June 2014
Last week was crazy in the Alps; all around the famous XC sites like Osterfelder, Hochfelln, Speikboden etc. the pilots gathered in droves to battle for XC points and beat records. The winds were light, and the cloudbase high.

The UP pilots were obviously also well-represented. Birgitte Kurbel flew her Trango X-Light 2 on an FAI triangle of 189km, beating the German ladies' record in the process and moving into the lead in the DHV-XC ranking. Here's her flight:
And our adventurous friend Stefan "Boxi" Bocks flew an open distance of 207km
These were just the tip of the iceberg - thanks to all our happy UP pilots for having helped to show the pontential of the UP wing palette!
