13 / 08 / 2006
BABYLON FREEFLY TEAM!
Winners of the 4th World Freefly Parachuting Championships in Gera, Germany 2006!
Once again, the boys (Stephane Fardel, Fred Fugen and Vincent Reffet) have succeeded. With commitment, determination, and hard work and a great passion they have reached their goal to become the World Champions of Freefly 2006! “Team BaByLoN gives extreme thanks to all our supporters who have worked in partnership together with us to realise our dream of flight.
With the support of the French Federation, Skydive Empuriabrava, Performance Designs, Sunpath Products, Sonic Flywear, Larsen & Brusgaard and Gath Helmets, we are going further on our journey.
Many thanks and appreciation goes to all our friends and supporters, especially BaByLoN students who ultimately give us all the motivation and purpose we need to keep going.
Most of all, praise to the family; the staff and instructors at BaByLoN Fly School. With the love and commitment they give and by relentlessly keeping the goal in sight, we are able to be a bit more than a bunch of dreamers having fun.”
Did you know…?
That founder member, Stephane Fardel, has been in every BaByLoN Freefly team line up since it began and before that in the Freestyle team with Nicolas Arnaud. He has been competing non stop, both as a performer and camera flyer at a world class level since 1999.
Also that Vincent Reffet is the youngest winner in history of any Freefly world-class competition level event; winning last year’s World Cup and World Games having just turned 21.
And that all three team members are second-generation skydivers, brought into the sport by skydiving fathers, all of whom are still jumping… (I blame it on the parents…thanks dad!).
