Team USA

The paragliding world championship is happening this July in Spain. Unlike pilots from other countries, those from the US receive no financial aid from the government. Nevertheless, they are going to represent us. I know the team leader, Rob Sporrer, because he let me crash in his camper when I went flying in Santa Barbara last year, and he is an awesome guy. Good luck to him and the rest of the team. Here's a cool video from 2009 (championships are biennial) to give you an idea what it's all about. Thanks for watching.
