Our friend, Alexey Galda, took first in the speed and distance events in Denmark. In his words:

“The semis and finals for both Distance and Speed were incredibly intense, exciting, and super-close! Honestly, it felt almost as intense as the 2nd Championships: Espen was amazing as always, Ulf is a speed machine, and Dennis Ohlson is a very talented and determined pilot who has been improving super-fast! Very safe and well-run competition, Joe did a great job keeping everything together and finishing with one day to spare.”
