Team NZL1 for 2021 Red Bull X-Alps hike and fly race
Representing New Zealand in the biggest adventure paragliding hike and fly event in the world, the Red Bull X-Alps, from 20 June 2021Otago
This event is the pinnacle of hike and fly. A truly exciting format that I’ve been a fan of since I first found out about paragliding and its immense potential to independently explore the mountains.
I have successfully completed (survived!) the last three events, in 2015, 2017, and 2019. People always ask, "are your mum and brother supporting you again?".
Because of travel restrictions, this edition I have supporters from within Europe:
Nicola, who has given online support in previous editions, a kiwi who still sports the accent but has lived in France in recent years;
Pierre, a Frenchman I used to work with, who once lived in Dunedin, who is very hands on (we used to install radio systems together), surfs and sails.
Neither are currently pilots but they've both had a little experience of it in the past.
The live tracking is addictive - I love sharing this experience with kiwis and the world.
