Just a quick update for all of you who have sent messages regarding what my plans are if the French attempt this week is successful.
After several years, the French team are indeed in Canada and preparing to attempt a launch this coming week. This is fantastic news for me because IF he does it I'll have a clear target to beat this Summer and bring the World Record to the UK. It really couldn't have worked out better.
The timing is great as we are just about to build the balloon envelope for my jump. As soon as we know what happens in Canada, we'll build a balloon to go higher and carry on as planned.
In the spirit of true sportsmanship I genuinely wish him good luck and, above all, safety.
