Congratulations to Tyr Goldsmith, only 18, for winning his first competition and beating his Dad Bruce Goldsmith who also made it on the podium in 3rd! “I’m really surprised and I wasn’t expecting this at all.” explains Tyr, “what was great is that I could keep up with everybody, and I even caught up with the lead gaggle at one point on the last task!”
The Chelan Nationals had a solid turnout especially in the Sports class, with 45 of the best US pilots competing for the gold. Tyr had a good challenge but with his solid start he kept the lead throughout.
The competition had 5 valid tasks. The competition was written into the record books with the longest task ever validated a 226km and more than 60 pilots made goal.
