Result sponsored the British Hang Gliding team during the 20th annual Hang Gliding World Championships in Mexico by providing jackets.

The chosen jacket was the R121X Classic Soft Shell Jacket, which kept team members Gordon Rigg, Carl Wallbank, Grant Crossingham, Steven Blackler, Graham Phipps and Wayne Thompson comfortable and waterproof during their activities.

The World Championships took place February 28 to March 13 in Valle de Bravo, central Mexico and saw 120 pilots from around the world compete.

The average length of each task varied from 100-200km depending on weather conditions. Valle de Bravo is a Mecca for hang gliding and paragliding with altitudes of 14,000ft is regularly achieved. The event will see competitors racing around the sky at speeds in excess of 70km/h.

The winning nation was Italy, which took Gold in both the individual and team events.
