Did you know that every day is a tunnel camp for Joey Jones?
posted: Feb 18th, 2015 Former DeLand Majik 4-way world champion of 2004, Joey Jones, has been living at Bodyflight Bedford for a few years. His coaching work includes a lot of indoor training, and his move to Bedford was a logical step years ago.
Every year he watches Bodyflight Bedford get very busy with teams when the annual World Challenge is coming closer, as he recently confirmed: "It has been a busy season here at the tunnel. Teams from all over have been coming to Bedford to hone their skills for the upcoming World Challenge 2015."
Did you know that Niklas Hemlin discussed Airspeed topics in a live interview last week?
posted: Feb 17th, 2015 Niklas Hemlin is the new Point for Arizona Airspeed, as the Sun Path Products NSL News has mentioned many times since the new lineup came together at the end of the 2014 season.
He is not new at all though, neither to Airspeed nor to the slot.
He was flying the Point slot for Fastrax years ago, and he won the 4-way gold medals as the Inside Center for Arizona Airspeed at the Mondial Dubai 2012.
Then he took a 2-year break and came back for the new lineup in the new slot. (more)

posted: Feb 14th, 2015 The Czech Indoor Cloud League group at the Hurricane Factory in Prague posted their first scores for the February sequences, and the new battle with Florida's iFLY Orlando group has partially turned into a team competition.
The Czech group consists mainly of 4-way teams, while Florida brings together individuals who fly with each other on a regular basis in changing lineups until some of them decide to build their own 4-way teams.

Did you know that the World Challenge 2015 includes the 10-year anniversary for David and Andy Grauwels?
posted: Feb 12th, 2015 269 different 4-way teams have been entered into the SKYLEAGUE.COM database for participation in one single event, the annual World Challenge at Bodyflight Bedford, over an 8-year time period. There are surely several competitors who have appeared in different lineups over the years, however, it is a very impressive number.

Did you know that last weekend's 50-pointer was the highest 4-way score since 2011?
posted: Feb 10th, 2015 It has been almost four years since a 4-way team posted the last 50-pointer or higher at a competition.
It happened at the last World Challenge where host Paul Mayer had a mandatory Super Sequence as a part of the 10-round meet in Bedford. Six teams scored 50 points or higher for one of the fastest sequences (H,M,Q,K,A) in modern history of indoor competition, and NMP-PCH Hayabusa had the highscore with a 65-pointer in Round 3.
It is not the unofficial indoor world record for a single round though. Perris Fury had posted a 66-pointer (J,M,E,D,L) a year earlier at the World Challenge, which... (more)
