Icaristics: Preparing for competition

Icaristics by Bruce Goldsmith

Bruce Goldsmith was Paragliding World Champion a decade ago. With his son Tyr facing his first World Championships in Italy, Bruce writes down some good advice.

‘Fly the gear you know … Use a backup instrument … When you apply bar, do it in two pushes.’ You know what they say – Dad knows best.
