Ty Sporrer takes top spot at US Nats - Sun Valley

Postby Dean S » Mon Sep 06, 2010 10:36 am

For those of you that haven't heard, Ty took home GOLD in the serial class on a DHV 2 glider. He smoked the Peaks, GTO's, XC3's, Trango's...and many more. He made goal on both days which wasn't easy. Check out the results:

Very nice work Ty, congrats!

When in doubt...TOP OUT!

Go Ty! Way to make the best of that "trump card".

Maybe we should get some local media coverage going to hype free-flying in SB!

By the way, just to set the record straight...that photo is me on the dance floor, serving Nick Greece...not waving.

Bob, nice 15 mile glide after you got boosted. That was the same spot I hit 16,500 and had two F-16 jets fly by just about level with me.
