Team airG at Coeur de Savoie Paragliding World Cup


by Johannes Glatz

We are happy to anounce that our airG xc allstar team, consisting of Xevi Bonet , Mika Diaz and Felix Rodriguez are going to compete at the Coeur de Savoie Paragliding World Cup in France (25.May -1.June)

We are looking back on a long and fertile cooperation with the PWC. At the same time we are looking forward to thrilling race with best wishes to all pilots. A big thank goes to the PWC organisation committee for competent and pragmatic planning.

The Coeur de Savoie venue brings together some of best and most well
known flying venues in all of France. Nearby Annecy and St Hilaire are
legendary in the free flying world. The mountains of the Bauges, the
Belledonne and the Chartreuse are full of rocky ridges and thermal
churning spines, perfect for paragliding.
The pilots flying in this competition have a phenomenal amount of
knowledge of how this area works, quite simply because it’s one of their
favourite playgrounds. Some of the pilots in this competition were
flying here before the others were even born, however the young blood
should not be underestimated. Young or old, male or female, nothing is
certain about who will win Coeur de Savoie 2019!
All of the top ten from the 2014 Coeur de Savoie will be competing once
again. Eight out of the top ten from 2017 and the top 3 ladies will
battle it out once more. Nine out of the top ten, including the first
lady, from the recent Super Final in Baixo Guandu are taking part.
Eighteen pilots taking part have already won a World Cup, four have won
the Super Final, six have been World or European Champion.
In the team competition at Coeur de Savoie in 2017 Ozone and Gin, after
six tasks, had exactly the same score proving the parity between the
then new Gin Boomerang 11 and the Ozone Enzo 3. This time there will be
three other CCC wings in the competition.
We are delighted to welcome pilots flying five different CCC certified
gliders in this competition: the Ozone Enzo 3, the Gin Boomerang 11, the
UP Guru, the Flow Spectra and the Niviuk Icepeak Evox.
Keep up with all the action on the PWCA app (which includes photos of
the pilots), read the live Commentary, and follow the pilots on the
tracking to see who the high flyers in this amazing competition will be.
