Icarus X USA - Meet the pilots

The weather forecast is for the inaugural Icarus X USA is er... 'kind of shitty.' Luckily for these chaps, this race is designed so that doesn't matter.  Nor did it deter these seven pilots. They'll have to get round the 170 mile way-pointed course by Saturday to be crowned the champion. If dry descriptions of terrain are your thing, you might enjoy the route plan here

At the startline, only one pilot, Trent, self selected into the Adventure Division. That leaves the other six competing for the Race title. That could all change if the pilots accept any support en route. Find out more about the difference between Adventure and Race Division here.
