X-Pyr is a wish accomplished.
We are a few devoted fans of this kind of race who, unable to wait any longer, dediced to try and design one for our Pyrenees, our own version of the hardest hiking and flying competition.
Starting in 2014, july, 13, 25 teams (in 2014 edition) will try to cross the Pyrenees, reaching the waypoints that the organization decides. Waypoints that could be on the highest mountains, or the deepest valleys. Starting at the Bay of Biscay, and finishing by the Mediterranean coast
Pilots must always carry the minimum amount of equipment whith them. It consists of: Glider, harness, parachute, helmet, mobile phone and live tracking equipment.
There are no stages, pilots can be on the move 17hours a day.
First in goal wins. From that moment the remaining pilots have just 24 hours to reach goal.
All in all, a big adventure. Anybody wishing to follow the race, will find live information, via web. With pilot’s positions, in 3d, on a full map. Pictures, videos, interviews, everything neccesary to bring supporters into the adventure.
