X-Pyr competitors do well at the European Championships

Three of our top seeds in this year’s X-Pyr have just had an excellent run at the European Paragliding Championships in Pegalajar, Spain. After 10 tasks and more than 1000 km flown in two weeks, Maxime Pinot, two-times runner-up in the X-Pyr was crowned champion of the continent.

In seventh place was Michal Gierlach (Spike) from Poland, who is a rookie in this years edition, but who flew over 300 km in southern Spain the day before the competition started.

And finally, last edition rookie and third overall in the X-Pyr, Pierre Remy was consistently at the top of the field but ended up 25th in the competition. The former world and superfinal champion was a scoring pilot for the French team.

Congratulations to all of them and we can’t wait to see you again on the starting line!

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