Speedrider hurt in accident on Mt Blanc massif

(ANSA) – AOSTA, FEB 26 – A speedrider was hurt in an accident
on the Mt Blanc massif on Friday.
    The man was hurt in a fall on the Colle del Gigante, friends
said after providing immediate assistance to him.
    The Val d’Aosta mountain rescue service is travelling to the

    Speed-flying and speed riding are advanced disciplines of
paragliding that use a small, high-performance paraglider wing
to quickly descend heights such as mountains.
    Speed flying and speed riding are very similar sports; speed
flying is when the speed wing is foot-launched, while speed
riding is a winter sport done on skis. (ANSA).
