The next stage of the PWC 2019, paragliding World Cup will take place in the heart of Savoy in 2019!
From May 25 to June 1, you will see the best pilots in the world compete against each other!
The Heart of Savoie has some of the best and most famous flying sites in all of France. Nearby Annecy and St Hilaire are legendary in the world of free flight. The mountains of the Bauges, Belledonne and Chartreuse are dotted with rocky ridges, perfect for paragliding.
The pilots who participate in this competition have a phenomenal knowledge of how this region works, simply because it is one of their favorite playgrounds. Some of the pilots in this competition were flying here before the others were even born, but one should not underestimate the blood of the young. Young or old, male or female, nothing is certain as to who will win Coeur de Savoie 2019!
The top ten from the 2014 Coeur de Savoie edition will be back in the running. Eight of the top ten from 2017 and the top three ladies will compete once again. Nine of the top ten, including the first lady of the Super Final in Baixo Guandu, will participate.
Eighteen pilots have already won a World Cup, four have won the Super Final, six have been World or European champions.
In the 2017 Coeur de Savoie team competition, Ozone and Gin, after six rounds, had exactly the same score, proving the parity between the new Gin Boomerang 11 and the Ozone Enzo 3, this time with five different CCC-certified gliders: Ozone Enzo 3, Gin Boomerang 11, UP Guru, Flow Spectra, Niviuk Icepeak Evox.
Follow all the action on the PWCA app (which includes photos of the pilots), read the live commentary, and follow the pilots on the track to see who will be the best pilots in this incredible competition.
All our encouragement for the Kortel design pilots!
