Did you know that the Golden Knights placed 5th on the combined leaderboard of the World Challenge 2015?
posted: Apr 12th, 2015 The Sun Path Products NSL News mentioned on a regular basis during the live streaming coverage of the World Challenge 2015 that there was not much serious competition for the Golden Knights in 4-way Women.
Team members and coach Solly Williams had their eyes mostly on the leaderboard of the AAA/Open Class and sometimes even on the live performance of the French team Weembi Lille in the flying chamber. Two members of the French Girls (Sophia Pecout, Christine Malnis), 2014 world champions in 4-way Women, competed in the AAA/Open Class and with the same competition draw.
However, it was not... (more)
Did you know that Carolina Turbo XP won $800 in the Skins Game of the Paraclete XP Outdoor Championship?
posted: Apr 11th, 2015 The aftermath of the Paraclete XP Outdoor Championship 2015 cannot be complete without the results of the Shamrock Showdown Skins Game.

posted: Apr 9th, 2015 The Indoor Cloud League leaderboard for March has been complete for a while, and it is time to honor the best performances with the BEST OF THE MONTH video.
It was the most competitive month in the young ICL history. Teams tied their best scores in three different categories (AA - RRR - RR), and the 22-pointer highscore for the AA Class sequence was shared between Hurricane Factory, iFLY Dallas and SkyVenture Montreal.
It is no big surprise that the three 22-pointers in the AA Class were posted by three trained teams. The Hurricane Factory Chicks posted the AA Class highscore in Prague, while... (more)
Did you know that NMP-PCH Hayabusa is probably still ahead of Arizona Airspeed?
posted: Apr 8th, 2015 It was not really a big surprise that SDC Rhythm XP once again increased the team record average for a 10-round indoor competition at the World Challenge 2015. In fact, the Sun Path Products NSL News concluded on 24 March 2015 that this could somehow be expected:
"Rhythm's next opportunity is coming up next week. Arizona Airspeed will not compete at the World Challenge 2015. However, Rhythm can do once again what the team has been doing patiently year by year: increasing the performance level and meet average.
26.6 is Rhythm's new indoor team record average. There is more than enough top... (more)
