Yesterday after a week+ of pretty rotten flying weather the skies cleared, the wind mellowed and @reavis_soars got us in perfect position to see a large section of course line I’ve never flown. Big confidence boost that was needed with less than two weeks to go. Feeling great about the gear, the team is dialed, the van is dialed, it’s time to take all the work of the past year (and the previous 2 races!) and put it all together and move fast.

 

At one point in the flight I got tall over the massif that leads up to the Eiger, and could have flown directly over into the Rhône. Surrounded by snow, alone in a perfect sky, flying a line that Bruce had always had on his hit list. Wish you could have been there buddy, this race is for you.
