Flying spirals at X-Alps

Today (Day 5) of racing at Red Bull X-Alps has been fantastic. With conditions good for flying since early this morning, the pilots have been in the skies and covering big distances.

With paragliding, the pilots try to gain height and they do this my latching on to thermals and spiraling upwards. It is incredible to watch them moving on the live tracking.

Log into the live tracking to get an eye full. As I type this, most of the Top 10 are now on the ground, including Pierre Carter from SA. This is seriously addictive.
