Tomorrow in China (this evening in the USA) will be the start of the 2014 World Wingsuit League Grand Prix. If you live outside of Asia you will be able to watch the event live streamed on worldwingsuitleague.com starting at 11:30PM EST.
Held in the Hunan province, near the town of Zhangjiajie, 26 wingsuit pilots will race down the famed Tianmen Mountain, in a brand new format, to determine who is the fastest wingsuit BASE jumper on earth (or at least, of those invited to the event). It’s the largest racing event in our sport and it’s nice to see the WWL progressing they way wingsuit BASE can be brought to the spectators beyond GoPro videos posted on YouTube.
