The name is pretty self-explanatory, but the challenge will have Travellers competing for Gold, Silver and Bronze medals across seven different courses. The faster you complete a course, the better your rewards.
The various courses will also allow you to use two new gliding techniques, “Sprint” and “Ascend.”
What the exact details of their mechanics will be is still up in the air - no pun intended - but it’s fairly easy to deduce one will be a speed boost (Sprint) while the other will give you easier vertical movement (Ascend).
