Behind the shot

Which images from the race do the photographers love the most? We talk to race photographers to find out.

Maxime Pinot (FRA1) performing during the Red Bull X-Alps in Montafon / Austria on 23-June-2021. In this endurance adventure race athletes from 18 nations have to fly with paragliders or hike from Salzburg along the alps towards France, around the Mont Blanc back to Salzburg.

This weekend is the deadline for the imagery contest Red Bull Illume; it’s the last chance photographers have to enter the renowned adventure and action sports imagery contest, so to encourage anyone else out there to enter, we thought we’d take a closer look at some of the best images to emerge from Red Bull X-Alps 2021 and have the photographers explain how they got the shot.
