The party’s over but the sun is still shining in Brazil.

Congratulations to Felix Rodriguez (ES) who won the Castelo leg of the Paragliding World Cup last week. He maintained his lead over seven tasks – winning by a whisker and a mere 5 points. Lucas Bernadin (FR) and Frank Brown (BR) were second and third.
