KOB-TV.com - By: Kristen Garcia, KOB.com - Balloon Fiesta officials have postponed America's Challenge Gas Balloon Race until early next week due to high winds.
Seven balloon teams were supposed to take off at 6 p.m. Saturday evening. The race was then rescheduled to 10 p.m. Saturday night, but officials decided to postpone the event until Monday or Tuesday due to high winds.
The teams will all race to fly the farthest distance from Albuquerque without landing.
Four of the seven teams are from the United States including last year's winners Peter Cuneo and Barbara Ficke. The two flew more than 1,400 miles, landing their balloon in Canada last year. More
