With only a little over a week now til Fisch heads over to America, a new partner has joined to help support Fisch with his Icarus Trophy adventure. Kaos Snow, have now joined the ranks and Fisch is UBER excited to welcome them to the team. Kaos stand for having an incredible time in the snowy and cold wilderness - their catchphrase is all about finding the "calm amongst the Kaos" and that is exactly what Fisch hopes to achieve whilst he is soaring gracefully through the skies in a 2000km air race in America.
When Fisch heads to America next week, he will be spending a month with one of the best Paramotor pilots on the planet; Ryan Shaw of Paradrenalin and making sure he is competition ready for September.
Of course no adventure would be complete without a few misadventures and shenanigans along the way. Just prior to training Fisch will be returning to one of his favourite places for some world class, big mountain skiing in Utah followed by an adventure filled roadtrip exploring many of southern Utah's spectacular National Parks.
In the lead up to this adventure though, Fisch would like to bring to light the magnanimous contributions from his partners - without their help and support none of this would at all be possible.
The Paradrenalin Team:
Paradrenalin, Dudek, Nirvana, Globetrekker, One Less Nude, Gondwana Outdoors, Kaos Snow, Icaro 2000, XTM Performance and Flytec.
*Fisch exploring the Denali region by sled dog. XTM performance helped to keep him warm in ambient temperatures of -30C with Australian merino baselayers, duck down mid layers and high performance goatskin gloves.
To date much mystique has surrounded the actual route for the Icarus Trophy but details are starting to emerge. The field of 45 competitors will now be kicking off their race in Washington State and heading south through some of the most scenic, picturesque and dangerous terrain the country has to offer. The final checkpoints of the race are still being scrutinised by the race organisers but at this stage the route is set to cover approximately 2,000km. Check it out!
A life long dream of mine has been to skydive and to skydive regularly. I've always been drawn to the idea of the freedom and lifestyle associated with it. Ever since my first tandem on my 16th birthday I was hooked. It has taken many a year but finally I have put myself in a position where I could learn to skydive and jump regularly for fun!
After packing literally hundreds of parachutes I was recently (and finally) able to start cashing in on my efforts and start jumping out of planes. With my now fresh licenses in hand there is absolutely no limit and I'm super stoked to start jumping my way around the world! Happy days!
