Bad news coming from Italy.
The team Aaron Durogati / Tazio Isgro has withdrown from the race.
Aaron explains the reasons that have led him to make the decision:
The X-Pyr is a great race and a fantastic adventure!
The last 2 edition was really big fun, amazing mountains and beautiful flight. After my recently knee problem this year I don't feel ready to race jet so I ll be not starting the race. I wish to all athletes a nice comp and adventure!!
We want to congratulate Aaron for his recent victory in the Italian championship, but, at the same time, the X-Pyr loses one of the best competitors we have ever had: 2nd in 2014 with the longest flight ever in the X-Pyr; and 3rd in 2016.
Good luck with the recovery, Aaron!
