Documentary of the first ever world PG championship in 1991, won by Robbie Whittal, features Bruce Goldsmith. It is strangely fascinating to see people dressed in pink & green Spandex doing XC at a snails pace on ancient gear. Held in St Andre and environs. Interspersed with some truly bizarre adverts for paragliders which are a treasure. Comes complete with site guide on a bit of paper. 1 hour.

Contributor's Notes:

Martin Nichols liked it, so an extra star from him,
