Event info

Der SauerlandAir e.V. lädt zum 2. NRW-CUP 2024 ein. Der Club freut sich, alle ambitionierten XC-Piloten, Wettkampfprofis und Neueinsteiger unter dem Motto "Zu Gast bei Freunden" im Sauerland zu begrüßen. Gemeinsam werden wir die Frühjahrsthermik im Sauerland nutzen um, nach einer heißen Waffel am Startplatz, die deutsche Wettkampfsaison zu eröffnen. Anschließend lassen wir die Abende wieder am berühmten HQ / Campground in Elpe bei einem Glas VELTINS am Feuer ausklingen.
Die Landesmeisterschaft NRW ist erneut eingebettet in einen internationalen FAI 2-Wettbewerb und findet zum zweiten Mal in unseren Top-Geländen statt. Die großen Startplätze ermöglichen ein Teilnehmerfeld von 100 Piloten.
Als besonderes Highlight haben sich in diesem Jahr die Organisatoren des NRW-CUPS und der MOSEL-TROPHY aufeinander abgestimmt. Um eine doppelte Anreise in die Mitte Deutschlands zu vermeiden, wurden die Termine beider Wettbewerbe eng zusammen gelegt. Durch die günstige Lage der Feiertage sind beide Wettkämpfe mit wenigen Urlaubstagen zu fliegen. Beide Bewerbe werden den "1. Deutschen Mittelgebirgspokal" ergeben, der zusätzlich als Gesamtwertung aus beiden Wettkämpfen ausgeschrieben wird.
Geplant ist, jedem Piloten, der sich im Sauerland zur Teilnahme qualifiziert, auch an der Mosel einen Platz zu sichern. Die Ergebnisse des Mittelgebirgspokals werden im Anschluss an die MOSEL-TROPHY ausgewertet und prämiert.
Hier gehts zur Mosel-Trophy - sichert euch einen Platz ( https://airtribune.com/mosel-trophy-2024/info ).
Die Einzelwertungen beider Bewerbe bleiben hiervon unberührt!

The SauerlandAir e.V. invites all ambitious XC pilots, competition professionals and newcomers to the 2nd NRW CUP 2024 under the motto "Visiting friends".
Together we will use the spring thermals in Sauerland to open the German competition season. After enjoying a hot waffle at the take offs we’ll end the evenings again at the famous HQ / Campground in Elpe with a glass of VELTINS BEER by the fire.
The NRW State Championship is once again embedded in an international FAI 2 competition and will take place for the second time in our top terrains. The huge take off sites allow a field of 100 pilots.
To avoid a double trip to the center of Germany for many pilots, the NRW Cup and the Mosel Trophy have teamed up and coordinated their dates closely this year. In addition and as an extra highlight, the overall results of both events will be included in a combined ranking, for our "1st German Midlands Cup",.
So, make sure to also check out the Mosel ( https://airtribune.com/mosel-trophy-2024/info ).
and secure your spot there as well. If you applied for both comps your application will be handled with priority.
The results of the German Midlands Cup will be evaluated and awarded following the Mosel Trophy. However, both competitions remain independent in their rankings!
