Is this the most experienced lineup ever?
There was a time when entering Red Bull X-Alps two or three times meant you were probably one of the most experienced athletes in the field. Not any more. The 2019 edition will host 18 veterans, of whom several have done the race multiple times; and between them, they clock up an incredible 47 appearances. Toma Coconea is not the only race legend around!

The Red Bull X-Alps 2019 Athletes have been announced
Discussing the announcement of the athletes, race director Christoph Weber says; “For 2019 we have a thrilling mix of both newcomers and seasoned pros. It was extremely difficult choosing from such a deep pool of talent, but we’re excited to see this highly competitive field go head to head in the mountains. You’ll notice 18 familiar faces who have earned themselves another shot at glory, but there are also 14 rookies who we believe have the potential to take this race by storm."
They come from all over the world; they’ve flown mountain ranges, won competitions, served in special forces and follow some interesting dietary regimes. They are the 2019 Red Bull X-Alps rookies. Here’s the lowdown on 7 of the 14 athletes taking part for the first time.
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.
