Nick Neynens is competing in the Red Bull Air Race this year. A long-time friend of Sky Dance, Nick hails from the island down south (New Zealand South Island), but lived in Brisbane for many years. Joshua Groth – (Sky Dance founder and director) is flying over to Europe to follow some of the Red Bull X-Alps flight route and will be recording the action on the blog.
The Red Bull X-Apls race is a race that is over 1000km long, and run in around a week. Only hiking, running, and flying by paraglider they kick off in Austria on the 5th of July.
We are an active follower on Nick Neynens blog Share My Joys and recommend anyone to go have a read. Inspiring as ever!

Blue Skies and Happy Trails…
