Claire wins French 2021-2022 hike-and-fly league
The French Hike and Fly league closed on 30 September, and Claire Garnesson won the women's category with three great days out with her Riot in the southern French alps.
The hike and fly league rewards metres gained by hiking, and kilometres flown, and pilots can hike-fly-hike-fly-hike etc as many times as they like within a day, as long as flights respect sunrise and sunset times.
Claire's three outings that counted were:
24th July 2022
Hike 5km with 989m vertical ascent
Hike 5.9km with 769m vert
Hike 4km with 975m vert
That’s an impressive tally of 2,733m vertical metres hiked and 117.4km flown in one day and some ground covered!
20th May 2022
Hike 4.6km with 552m vert
Hike 3.9km with 3m vert
Total 555m vert ascent on foot, 60.9km flown
7th May 2022
Hike 3.4km with 736m vert
Hike 2.2km with 61m vert
Hike 3.1km with 591m vert
Total 1,388m vertical ascent on foot, 34.1m flown
Congratulations Claire, that’s some serious sport! #FlyRiot
