Nearly 150 pilots will be heading to Roldanillo in Colombia in January for the 14th Paragliding World Championships.
Pilots from around 40 nations will be competing for individual podium places as well as coveted team medals.
The competition runs for two weeks – 10-24 January 2015 – and will see pilots competing in the skies above the fertile Cauca Valley.
Roldanillo is one of the main paragliding and hang gliding sites in Colombia and is on the west side of the Valle del Cauca at the foot of the Cordillera Occidental. The town sits at an elevation of 966m and has an average annual temperature of 23C.
