How the athletes get into shape
How do you prepare the body to climb up to 4,000m of vertical every day, run and hike daily marathons, and fly on the limits of fatigue in conditions that would keep 90% of paraglider pilots on the ground? That's the question we asked for Red Bull X-Alps 2021 athletes to see what their physical preparation for the world's toughest adventure race looked like.

Preparation is key!
Success in the Red Bull X-Alps is all about the preparation, and not just physical training or practising wingovers. There's a lot more that goes into it, focusing on your organizational and logistical abilities for example. We talked to Chrigel Maurer, among others, to get more insights into his preparation process!
