Gavin McClurg (USA1) says: 'Gliding towards the Eiger Turnpoint! It’s early day eight of the @redbullxalps. So nice to see the sun after three days of rain, monster hikes (5,000m yesterday to tag the Titlis Turnpoint, 4,000+ the day before) and while we’ve had some epic glides through unreal terrain like in this pic I’m pretty excited to hear my vario beep again! Body feels good, no pain anywhere but today is going to require a little more coffee than usual, this kid is sleepy! Stoked with our position, time to make some big moves in the sky on our way to Monaco. Still a LONG ways to go, but the crux is now behind us.'
