The Red Bull X-Alps 2021 athletes are announced!
Red Bull X-Alps is back and the athletes for the world's toughest adventure race have been announced today! Competitors from around the globe will put their body and mind to the ultimate test, navigating their way over 1,000km through treacherous alpine terrain. Often covering 100km a day, only by foot or paraglider, the athletes must combine skill and strategy to reach each turnpoint and avoid elimination.
The tenth edition will see 33 world-class athletes from 17 nations pushing themselves to the limit, in an effort to beat not only personal, but also world records; 13 of whom are rookies and 3 female.
