It is an extended World Meet situation since not only the national teams are eligible for the indoor competition at Bodyflight Bedford. Other world class teams like XL, SDC Rhythm XP and Thunder can also show what they have to offer and get their scores posted on the same leaderboard.
XL has revealed their 2013 lineup earlier than usual, and it includes a smooth transition story from the Paraclete XP Indoor Championship 2013 to the World Challenge, as several teams and competitors who competed last weekend will also be in Bedford.
|World Challenge 2007||Rd. 1||Rd. 2||Rd. 3||Rd. 4||Rd. 5||Rd. 6||Rd. 7||Rd. 8||Rd. 9||Rd. 10||Total||Avg|
|1||Airspeed Odyssey (US)||26||42||31||31||24||26||24||24||24||28||280||28.0|
|4||Hayabusa Defence (BE)||23||41||29||27||21||20||21||20||21||24||247||24.7|
|5||Sky Panthers (RU)||24||43||30||28||8||23||20||21||21||25||243||24.3|
The 2013 lineup is identical with the one of 2007, and the NSL News found some 2007 footage in the archives. It includes a surprise visit by Team Fastrax in Bedford, with Thomas Hughes and Niklas Hemlin in the lineup, who finished one single point behind Arizona Airspeed's Odyssey lineup.
Thomas Hughes then competed for XL in 2008, 2009 and 2010 before he joined Arizona Airspeed in 2011, together with his former Fastrax team mate Niklas Hemlin.
|World Challenge 2012||Rd. 1||Rd. 2||Rd. 3||Rd. 4||Rd. 5||Rd. 6||Rd. 7||Rd. 8||Rd. 9||Rd. 10||Total||Avg|

Brian Johnson had his indoor warmup opportunity last weekend at Paraclete XP where he flew the Center Inside slot for USA CAN. The 23.4 average with the pickup team was only good enough for the 4th place, even though USA CAN outscored Arizona Airspeed and posted the highscore in Round 6. His XL job will require more to get back into the money rankings in Bedford. He will again be in the rear piece together with John McIver.
