To finish the race you must first take part in it

It’s very SADDENING to see more and more pilots pulling out of X-Pyr due to injuries. Just a brutal reminder of how risky paragliding is, especially when pushed to the limits.

For the race that’s just one another replacement or less names on the list, but… behind it, it’s long recovery and personal dramas. Something to have in mind before jumping into another lee-side or just keep-flying when the sky gets dark.

Had a cold shower myself last week, stupid and unnecessary mistake sent me in spiky bushes. Painful and frustrating experience, but also one that ended with a foot injury. Hopefully minor and I’m fine, but it’s often just so close.

I wish everyone a quick recovery and, please, be wise! It’s just a race!

Without them, the X-Pyr wouldn't exist.
