“Athletes face the difficult task of choosing their own routes, which will often lead them through remote alpine territory. Being equipped with tiny RECCO reflectors lets us locate them even in the most remote and mountainous areas,” says Jürgen Wietrzyk, Safety Director of Red Bull X-Alps, about the latest partnership with Swedish rescue system providers RECCO.

The unsung heroes
When athletes make Monaco, it’s easy to forget the team who helped get them there. We want to salute the heroics of the supporters. They are the unsung champions of the Red Bull X-Alps, performing multiple roles to help support their athlete. Find out what roles they have to play and what lengths they go to see their athlete reach the goal!
Red Bull X-Alps is the world’s toughest adventure race. It’s difficult to think of another race that demands such high level of both physical and mental fitness of body and mind.
