World BASE Race Results

The 2011 World BASE Race has come to a close with  Frode Johannessen once again claiming the top spot in wing suits. He is followed by Tom Erik Heimen and Ronny Risvik.

In the women’s race, Livia Dickie snatched the top spot over competitor  Kjersti Eide.

The Tracking event seen Martin Plassen, Thomas Ferger and Neil Amonson round out the top spots.

When asked about the safety of the event, founder Paul Fortun explained,  “We had only one treelanding, and one steering line broken this year.  I have to consider issues in the tracking race and how to resolve those issues for next year. It is easy to make safe distance tracking, but safe racing is another issue. Glad everyone is good and the event was a success.”

After midnight the moon set and I was alone with the stars. I have often said that the lure of flying is the lure of beauty, and I need no other flight to convince me that the reason flyers fly, whether they know it or not, is the esthetic appeal of flying.~Amelia Earhart
