Arthur Moindrot, tells us about his first H&F experience: the Mont-Blanc Air Tour.
With very good pilots registered, and complicated weather forecasts, the competition looked particularly difficult. Aware of my flying potential, but also of my physical level compared to the other pilots, I really hoped to be able to do well by flying as much as possible.
The first day was particularly difficult, with 28kms and 3200m D+. Physically "easier" with only 1600m of D+ on the second day, it was mentally more difficult with very strong aerological conditions (a lot of wind) and extremely cold temperatures.
My flight level allowed me to get out of it, taking a considerable lead on referent pilots in the H&F world, before making 2 small mistakes because of the aerological conditions which occupied my mind more in terms of safety than the race itself. Some of them managed to overtake me in flight at the last marker, while I was climbing on foot... This was followed by a great goal race at the end of the course. I still finished 5th with only 6 min behind Aaron DUROGATI who won the competition. I am extremely happy with this result and to have been able to finish this first competition in good shape.
As far as my objectives are concerned, they have all been reached:
- No injury
- Intact equipment
- Maximum pleasure, even if it was necessary to go and get it in the difficult flight conditions, the cold, the fatigue...
I didn't set myself a target result for this first experience, but I am very happy to finish 5th and to realize that it would have been possible to do even better.
I don't know yet what will be the next one, but I know that I will have to accentuate the physical training to be at the level, and to review some strategies of organization and flight. I really want to repeat the experience, but I still need some time to think about it as the commitment is total in this kind of competition.

To be continued ...

World Cup, Gochang, South Korea, 1st to 8th October, 2022.
At the beginning of October, the paragliding world will head to South Korea, a favourite World Cup destination, for our fourth competition there.
Gochang has held many paragliding competitions over the years, including a pre-World Cup and an PWC Asian tour event.
Whilst October is fairly late in the season, this is a good thing as the rice paddies are dry and should produce good thermals and leave more landing options than normal. Gochang normally offers good conditions allowing cat's cradle tasks or downwind doglegs. If we get light easterly winds, we may be able to use the bigger mountains to the east for even more racing possibilities.
The weather patterns can be varied at this time of year, from high pressure days with no clouds, to less stable days with perfect cumulus.
Whatever the weather, Korea is always an unforgettable experience of culture and culinary delights. One thing is also certain: at this time of year the tree covered hills around Gochang will be a festival of autumn colours.
So, it's all aboard for the last chance to get those few remaining places for the 2022 Super Final in December in Mexico!
Follow the competition on our website pwca.org and our live app live.pwca.org.
All the results will be available at: live.pwca.org/scores
