IBA performance competition Can't Post

 
We are happy to announce a new online performance competition at Monte Brento in collaboration with http://www.Skyderby.ru

The 3 disciplines are:

- Wingsuit Speed Challenge (25sec) https://skyderby.ru/...titions/29/year/2019
- One-piece Speed Challenge (25sec) https://skyderby.ru/...titions/30/year/2019
- Flare Challenge https://skyderby.ru/...titions/31/year/2019

To compete all you need is a GPS (Flysight or similar) and a computer with internet.

We shortened the competition window to 25 seconds to ensure pilots have enough time to flare and pull whilst still respecting the 30sec+ canopy time rule.

The top pilots in each discipline will also be invited to participate in a social competition during the annual "raduno" meeting later this summer. Details to follow.

Who will be the fastest? Who will flare the highest? Happy racing!

ps. We decided to call it a speed challenge so we can easily explain the results to the general public, giving a result as the average speed over the 25 seconds. A random person off the street can understand 200 km/h is fast but will struggle to understand a result of 1300m without context. Yes we know it would make more sense to call it distance, but speed = distance / time :)
