Alptitude!

High Hopes in the French Alps

Spot the Cr-eagle!

Watching the X-Alps live tracking, I was waiting to catch a glimpse of Maurer as he flew towards the Aravis… it was fantastic! Simply knowing what has been happening over the last week, and catching a glimpse of the action was just incredible.

Although, my camera has no great zoom lens capability, I think it just about caught him…

X-Alps! 2015

The X-Alps, is well underway, and has been for the last week! The most spectacular, and testing, race on the planet, (excluding perhaps some other marathonic (if that is a word?!) races that are set in deserts, or such-like, not sure, but as far as I know, this is the best! and no other competition comes close…

We have been glued to our screens, as and when we can, between clients and flying, and are perhaps hoping to catch Maurer, as he heads over our way! We’ll be keeping a look out!

Meanwhile, yesterday we were in Annecy, with a small group of pilots who enjoyed some good flying, and I caught this pic of the X-alps, Turnpoint, sign-in board, awaiting it’s first signature..
