Did you know that registration is open for the World Challenge 2014?
posted: Jan 9th, 2014 The Sun Path Products NSL News has covered the annual World Challenge indoor competition live from Bodyflight Bedford year by year since 2007. The event was launched by owner and passionate indoor flyer Paul Mayer in 2006 when 12 teams attended the inaugural event.
Arizona Airspeed's Odyssey lineup of 2006 (Eliana Rodriguez, Craig Girard, Andy Delk, Brian Johnson) won easily by 27 points at the first event in Bedford and came back with Mark Kirkby in the Tail slot a year later. This time, it would be a nail-biter with a 1-point finish over Team Fastrax (280 - 279).
