The German paragliding scene is possibly the most sorted of any nation, with a strong federation working hard to further the sport in Germany. One initiative which has fostered many new talents over the years is the DHV Newcomer Challenge, a competition format aimed at preparing and nurturing the next generation of World Cup superstars.
Last weekend the Newcomer Challenge was centered around our own back yard in Tolmin, and young German Queen 2 pilot Philipp Wagner scored himself a 2. place overall in the event. Well done Philipp, we believe this will be just one of many great results from your side!
