Did you know that NFTO tries to defend the 4-way Women title of the Wind Games with a new lineup?
posted: Jan 16th, 2016 The preview of the Wind Games 2016 continues with a closer look at the field of teams in 4-way Women.
Yesterday's update included some topics of this category, as there is an overlapping area. The Clash of Champions 2015 had only one AAA Class leaderboard where teams with competitors of all genders and ages posted their results together, and the topics were naturally connected.
The Sun Path Products NSL News will once again create a combined leaderboard for journalistic purposes later on; however, the Wind Games will have the all-female lineups separated from teams with only male competitors... (more)
Did you know that the Wind Games 2016 have a great field even without Arizona Airspeed?
posted: Jan 15th, 2016 The recent withdrawal by Arizona Airspeed from the upcoming Wind Games 2016 has not deterred other teams from competing in Empuriabrava, Spain. In fact, the number of registered teams (15) was higher than last year (13) before Airspeed canceled.
It leaves NMP PCH Hayabusa without a serious challenger for the top spot in 4-way Open, however, the field is still strong, and the competition behind the Belgian indoor and outdoor world champions promises a good battle for the other medal positions.
Weembi Lille, bronze medalist at the Clash of Champions 2015, is back and can now take aim at the... (more)
Did you know that Dennis Praet, David and Andy Grauwels had 8-way experience before the Thund8rbirds?
posted: Jan 14th, 2016 The Sun Path Products NSL News covered the 8-way project of NMP PCH Hayabusa and Thunder ISR a few times before the Thund8rbirds eventually competed for the first time at the Belgian Nationals 2015.
Both 4-way teams had also planned to attend the FAI World Cup 2015 and then compete together in 8-way in Teuge. Thunder's eligibility to compete for the Belgian delegation or as a guest team was challenged before the competition began, and the team eventually withdrew from both events, 4-way and 8-way.
It was a disappointing experience, especially for Thunder ISR, however, the Thund8rbirds pulled... (more)
Did you know that the Team World Rankings are a fun new project?
posted: Jan 13th, 2016 Yippee! I found another playground! It is so much fun to be so deeply involved in this sport. OK, I will never make a lot of money, but I have to admit that I love my job, and that alone has a lot of value. Anyhow, one of the cool things about my job is that I am not restricted or limited by rules and regulations, procedures and sanctions. I love that part.
Remember two months ago, when I was exposing some of the judges? I had nothing to lose, so I could stick my neck out as far as I wanted. OK, I was a little bit nervous, but thanks to the wonderful audience I was so strongly encouraged and... (more)
Did you know that SDC Core is currently far ahead of the world's VFS competition?
posted: Jan 12th, 2016 The visit of the Sun Path Products NSL News with SDC Rhythm XP and the live NSL Talk with the team at Skydive Sebastian last week took place before the new situation with Arizona Airspeed's personnel change came to the surface.
The topic was not on the agenda at that time, only indirectly when the discussion turned to the time after the USPA Nationals 2016.
Another surprise topic came out of the visit to Sebastian when the reigning USPA champion in 4-way VFS, SDC Core, happened to be in the boarding area on Rhythm's training day, as well.
Both teams had synchronized their schedules for... (more)
Did you know that David and Andy Grauwels will miss Airspeed's opposition at the Wind Games?
posted: Jan 11th, 2016 It did not take too long until the news of a change in the Arizona Airspeed lineup made it to Europe. Airspeed's cancelation of the upcoming Wind Games indoor competition in Empuriabrava, Spain, made it clear enough that the team would not be ready for the next confrontation with NMP PCH Hayabusa.
The Sun Path Products NSL News contacted Hayabusa members David and Andy Grauwels, who are the two original members of the reigning 4-way world champions, to ask them for their reactions and thoughts after learning that Airspeed would not compete at the Wind Games.
The Wind Games will still feature... (more)
