We chalenge YOU to come and FLY our new XC competition format! 

We are organizing completely new type of XC competition that promotes real XC skills instead of full speeding with top gun gliders designed by very few brands. We would like to see many different glider brands and classes flying for the first places!
Does not matter which glider you fly!

The idea came from Marko Hrgetic wanting to promote XC competition flying in such a way that pilots' XC skills are tested in the same conditions, same chance, same days, same value o flying. 

Instead of the typical competition where the winners are the pilots who fly the most advanced gliders, we promote true XC flying because our competition is scored in the fairest way taking into account all the relevant factors.

This competition will show the best Cross Country pilots, as the winners will be not the ones that fly the fastest and shortest in time, but the winners will be the pilots that fly the fastest, the longest and the smartest. This competition will challenge pilots like no other competition in the history of paragliding. You will be in the real test to show all that you know as XC pilot, competition pilot, team leader making flight analysis, flight tactics and demonstrating your mental and physical condition during 6 flying days in Valle de Bravo, with the weather that never lets us down.

It is competition where you can fly where you want and how much you want!

Join us at this amazing event that will be held in January 2018.
