2 podiums at the pre-PWC in Nirgua, Venezuela!

GIN distributor Carlos Gomez won the Venezuelan pre-PWC on his home ground, and GIN factory pilot Aaron Durogati also made the podium—despite sickness and landing 100m short of goal on one task. Both pilots were on the Boomerang 9. 

Among the females, GIN team pilot Joanna Di Grigoli took 2nd spot on her new Boomerang X-Alps. Conditions in the 5 tasks were tough, with many pilots bombing out just after take-off. Joanna told us, "I was very comfortable with my Boom X-Alps and people were amazed how I was outclimbing people in thermals. I was able to fight against the wind and thermal up in difficult conditions...I love my Boom X-Alps!"

Congratulations Carlos, Aaron and Joanna!
