X-Pyr is a desire that we hope to see accomplished.
A few lovers of this kind of races, haven’t been able to wait anymore, and have made this for our Pyrenees, our own version of the strongest race hiking and flying.
Starting in august, 5, 20 teams (in 2012 edition) wil try to cross the Pyrinees, checking the waypoints that organization decides. Waypoints that could be on the highest mountains, o deeper valleys. Starting on Cantabric sea, and ending in Mediterranean coast
Pilots always must carry the minimum equpment whith them. It is compossed by: Glider, harness, parachute, helmet, mobile phone and live tracking sequipment.
There are no stages, 17 hours per day when pilots can move.
First in goal, win. Then rest of pilots will have 18 hours to recah the goal.
Finally, a big adventure. Every user following the race, will have live information, via web. With each position of the pilots, 3d, on a full map. Pictures, videos, interviews, everything neccesary to make the follower into the adventure.
