In July 2017, 31 world-class athletes from 20 different nations embarked on a grueling hike and fly adventure across the Alps. Filming the race was an 18-man camera crew, equipped with the latest technology and a helicopter. Just in time for the holidays, we've put together a 52-minute documentary showcasing the most epic moments of this year’s edition.

Jam-packed with incredible paragliding and almost impossible feats of Alpine adventure, the movie is now online at Narrated by race reporter Tarquin Cooper, the documentary features veteran pilots such as reigning champion Chrigel Maurer (SUI1), Paul Guschlbauer (AUT1) and Romanian running man Toma Coconea (ROU), as well as rookies like Benoît Outters (FRA4) and Simon Oberrauner (AUT4).

From the start in Salzburg to the finish in Monaco, you can follow the athletes as they traverse the mountainous terrain of seven different countries including Slovenia, Germany, Italy, Switzerland and France. Covering a straight-line distance of 1,138km, the 11-day journey is not just a story of adventure, but a true statement of the skill and unwavering determination of the athletes. 

Race organizer and co-founder Ulrich Grill says; “Red Bull X-Alps 2017 was fiercely competitive and as unpredictable as ever. The athletes gave everything they could; both physically and mentally, so it’s great to see the full extent of their achievements come together in the 52-minute documentary. We’re very excited to announce its release and hope the fans will enjoy it too.”
