The first real "hammertag" has come to the Alps. Finally! We have seen first 200km+ FAI triangles of the spring season. The number of flights in Saturday's daily score is currently on a good path to all-time record value (4557 flights just now; 4944 is the record).


The spring season has started explosively in the Himalayas!


You can safely ignore AVG/Avast "phishing threat" connected with various content on domain s.xcontest.app while visiting xcontest.org (or you can report here https://www.avg.com/en-ww/report-false-positive#pc ). A sidenote: There is a good enough antivirus/firewall protection build into Windows OS for many years, standalone software doesn't bring any substantial benefit (and sometimes only problems).

The weather in Colombia seems to be exceptionally good this year for flying, probably influenced by El Niño. 🇨🇴 The FAI triangle record has been broken twice at Roldanillo so far, firstly by Bogdan Bialka 215km and yesterday by Cedar Wright 219km. 7 of the top 10 most valuable flights from Roldanillo were flown this January. Will we see another conqueror this year? 😶‍🌫️ Edit: We didn't have to wait long and already today 230 km fell by Bogdan again👏 Check daily score in comment! ⤵️ #XContest #ElNiño #Roldanillo #fairecord #colombia
