Athletes faced a complicated charge toward Mont Blanc with the weather in the Chamonix Valley proving quite an obstacle and slowing many athletes down. Mont Blanc is a notoriously tricky Turnpoint. Western Europe’s highest mountain was first featured in the Red Bull X-Alps in 2005 and has been a Turnpoint in every edition except for 2017. It's difficult to tag and if it’s not flyable, it’s brutal on foot.
As we’ve said before, a lot can happen in a day of the Red Bull X-Alps. We put together a round up of the key moments from the morning of Day 4 and explain which moves did and did not pay off for athletes. Click below for more!
Kinga Masztalerz (NZL) smashed out an amazing flight from Turnpoint 4, Lermoos after having to launch low, at just 150m from the valley floor! She then moved toward Turnpoint 5, Piz Buin, which is about 85km from Lermoos, in super fast time. She still has a battle ahead to avoid elimination tomorrow, but it looks like she’s going to fight.
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.
