Welcome to the circus…The front cover of Cross Country 165 shows one of the magical aerial machines from this year’s Coupe Icare, and that gives us a great a chance to look forward to what the manufacturers are bringing to the market from next year.
From the ‘Baby Enzo’ for performance XC pilots wanting the latest two-line technology, to a raft of new high-end EN B gliders to the latest from the world of paramotoring – it’s all wrapped up in this issue.
Plus, we have…
Going for distance in Deniliquin
We asked XContest Women’s winner Kari Ellis to tell us all about her favourite spot in Australia – flatland towing heaven Deniliquin. If you want to go far, start here.
If there’s one stand-out article from Cross Country 165 it’s Falling, by competition pilot Brett Hazlett. Brett had a bad accident a year ago – he documents his painful and often traumatic road to recovery in this amazing article. A must-read.
