This morning we saw Ondrej Prochazka (CZE) starting early to avoid the others overtaking him. After an amazing comeback yesterday, Ondrej didn’t pull his Night Pass. Unfortunately for the Rookie, it wasn’t quite enough to escape elimination at 6am. It’s time to say goodbye to the rookie from Czech, but few people try Red Bull X-Alps just once – we hope to welcome him back in a future edition!
Tuesday evening saw four athletes at the back of the pack opt to pull their Night Passes An understandable move for the athletes at the back, but there was a surprising move in the battle for the lead when Chrigel Maurer (SUI1) also pulled his Night Pass. His supporter said the team made the decision to leave the gaggle behind in order to get maximum use of conditions on Day 4.
Eli Egger (AUT4) tagged Turnpoint 4, Lermoos in the Tiroler Zugspitz Arena yesterday at about 14:45 after taking a more direct route, with much more straightforward flying compared to the other athletes. It was a well-executed tactic that pushed her up five places in the rankings. "That was not easy flying. She's a beast. Totally amazing", Gavin McClurg commented.
Red Bull X-Alps is the world’s toughest adventure race. It’s difficult to think of another race that demands such high level of both physical and mental fitness of body and mind.
