New world record in the Hike and Fly field: 13.390 m of vertical ascent

Yesterday, NKore Team pilot Tanguy Renaud-Goud broke the impressive Hike & Fly World Record that Lukas Hofer held since 2018 (13.040 m of vertical ascent).

The rules are to hike using only your legs and then fly down. You can only fly during the hours of sun.

He started walking at 1 am and hiked up Le Taillefer (2.500 m of ascent) during the night. The first flight was at 5:19 am. After this, he hiked up 11 times the vertical kilometer of Le Grand-Serre in South Grenoble. His last flight was at 21:22, at the limit in terms of timing.

Tanguy achieved 13.390 m at the end using the proto of Niviuk's new Kode P. In 24 hours he hiked the equivalent of the Everest and the Mont Blanc.

Here are some of his impressions: "I feel very tired mentally and physically. I feel that I went to the limit of my abilities yesterday. Today I can say that we broke the record but I can especially say that I learned a lot about myself."

Well done Tanguy!
