Forward motion, headfirst & horizontal to gravity!
Who will be the world's fastest flying human in 2009?
This 5 day event will begin in Hellesylt, Norway as a 3 day competition July 9-11, and the Base Race finals will be taking place in Romsdalen, Norway August 13-15.
Thirty-two of the worlds best flying athletes, including Face Level's own CORE Team FLI athlete Neil Amonson, will be competing head to head, after jumping off Gridset skolten. There will be two jumpers per race, and six rounds to see who will be the first to cross the finish line 750m away.
Hans Holmefjord, a Norway native, reached a top speed of 234 Km/h after 16.6 seconds. That's 145 miles per hour! Will he get beaten out this year?
Stay tuned to Face Level and Team FLI for more information on this event, and to find out who the world's fastest flying human is!
