The Hang Gliding Pre-Worlds 2018 will be based in Tolmezzo, Friuli Venezia Giulia, in the northeast of Italy and will run from 27 July until 4 August.
“The competition flying area will develop above extremely different and vast areas: from the sea to the Dolomites, crossing the flatlands, the Alps and the Prealps. The main competition region will be Friuli Venezia Giulia, but pilots could fly also above some other regions and countries: Veneto, Trentino Alto Adige, Slovenia and Austria“.

XCBusa is an annual paragliding competition that has been run by the Busa Flying Team in the Lake Garda area of Italy since 2014.
Scores take into account three flights. These can be flown any time between February and October but must meet specific criteria. Two must be declared before the flight is flown, and a third can be declared within 24 hours afterwards. The specific criteria can be studied on XCbusa.com.
There are always good prizes on offer, and this year the first prize is a Woody Valley GTO Light harness.

The Italian Open / Monte Cucco International trophy takes place in Sigillo, Italy from 10-18 August 2019, and is to be a test event for the 2020 European Class 1 Championships.
