Base Racing is an extreme sport to say the least. Two racers go head-to-head as they leap off the edge of a mountain cliff. Each participant wears a wingsuit and a parachute. At the signal, they leap and race to the finish line before deploying the chutes and gliding to a safe landing.
This year, 35 athletes from 12 different countries competed.
