We sat down with Patrick and talked about his Red Bull X-Alps 2021. He told us about his highlights and stand-out moments and how the race compared to his previous ones.
What was your highlight of the race?
The best moment for me was to get to the goal in Zell am See with my team and even better friends than before the race. We stood together and all said: That was an awesome time!
What was the toughest part for you?
Waking up at 5AM on Day 6, the physical exertion of Day 5 (65km and 4,500 vertical meters) was clearly noticeable.
What was THE stand-out memory for you?
When my supporter, Andy Jäggi came to me and told me, "You have done something great with your performance."
How was this race in comparison to your other Red Bull X-Alps races?
The race in 2019 was very tough for me and it wasn't always a pleasure. 2021 felt to me like I was floating down a river on an air mattress and key places like Mont Blanc we could just fly around. So, I could enjoy many moments during the race.
