When Red Bull X-Alps officially kicks off on June 16, 2019, 32 athletes from 20 countries will once again push their endurance hiking, trail running, mountaineering and paragliding skills to their limits. Their daily adventures in the mountains will demand the highest level of physical strength and determination. Ultimately, the competitor’s mental fortitude and race strategy will be the deciding factor. Before taking to the air each day, athletes must assess the ever-changing weather conditions and decide where and when to take off.
It’s exactly this that makes Red Bull X-Alps so exciting and so unpredictable, it's what we all have been waiting for since Chrigel Maurer won the last edition - his 5th consecutive win - in 2017!
Where do we go from here?
