Icarus X Paramotor
March 21 @ 8:00 am - March 24 @ 5:00 pm
Icarus X Series
The Icarus X Series is a series of weekend-long Icarus Trophy-esque races around the globe. They’re not only great practice for newbie paramotorists but also offer a chance for more seasoned pilots to flex their muscles and win a free spot on the Icarus Trophy proper. Expertly or badly guide your paramotor from the start to the finish, overcoming everything that gets thrown your way. Race Class pilots must remain totally unsupported the entire way. Adventure Class pilots are able to accept some assistance.
These are genuinely dangerous things to do. Their website is written in a light-hearted fashion but you cannot overestimate the risks involved in taking part in this adventure.
Your chances of being seriously injured or dying as a result of taking part are high. Individuals who have taken part in past Adventurists’ adventures have been permanently disfigured, seriously disabled and even lost their life.
This is not a glorified holiday, it’s an unsupported adventure and so by its very nature extremely risky. You really are on your own and you really are putting both your health and life at risk. This is what makes them adventures.
