Welcome to the Sports-Class Racing Series, a series of international high-level competitions to crown a Sports-Class Champion at the end of 2024. If you enjoy racing mid-aspect wings, you’ve come to the right place!

The SRS is for pilots who have outgrown fun and national competitions, and are looking to take the next step. It’s also for experienced EN-B & EN-C pilots who want to finally be able to race on a level playing field. In the SRS, pilots will enjoy all the thrills of high-level racing without needing to fly an EN-D or CCC wing.

In short, it’s paragliding racing for a new generation.

This is 2nd edition of the 2024 series and BGD will be our partner for the event.

For this edition we are going to the Berga, in the heart of Catalunya, Spain. The event will have 6 racing tasks.

Our meet director will be Joanna Di Grigoli. Joanna has expansive experience in our sport and in Spain has previously MD’d the Nordic Open 2021 and Belgian Open 2022. She also runs a very successful Spanish podcast (link to the podcast)

The Berga venue
Berga has previously hosted the Spanish Nationals of four occasions. Be ready to be amazed by the Catalan culture and cuisine. The local club is well known for organising the most fun events in the whole Spanish territory. Being a part of the Pyrenees we can expect some reliable weather, strong thermals and generous convergences lines.

At the end of the event, there will be a draw for a BGD Sports wing of the winners choice, and an Oudie N instrument from Naviter.

You can find out a lot more about the SRS series on the FAQ section of our website:

How to get here

Alongside you can find a field for camping or hard standing for caravans. There are showers and toilets available however the camping is informal.

Via Plane:
You can fly into Barcelona and from there, connect via metro to the bus station. Then take the ALSA bus from Estación de Autobuses Barcelona Nord to Berga, this journey takes 2 hours.

You can also fly into Girona, but from there is best to rent a car.

Via Train:
Most of europe is connected via train lines, you can take a tain to Barcelona Sants and from there connect to the same bus you may take coming by air.

Driving is a good option, since would be faster and rentals are not expensive. You can organise sharing some rental cars via the pilots group in the SRS WhastApp channel.
