Race to Mt. Blanc - and back!
The new route for Red Bull X-Alps is finally revealed and it's no longer a race to Monaco but a race across the Alps - and back again. At 1,238km it's the longest route in the history of the world's toughest adventure race. It will see athletes race across Austria, Germany, Switzerland, France and Italy, before finishing in Zell am See, Austria, via 12 Turnpoints.
Here is everything you need to know about the Turnpoints in this year’s race. Which ones are the most remote and challenging to reach? Which ones require athletes to land and sign a board? And why tagging Mt. Blanc will be harder than in previous years.
Join us live on Instagram for a chat with Gavin McClurg (USA1) and Aaron Durogati (ITA1). It kicks off today at 17.30 (CET). They will share their thoughts about the route and what it means to finish in Zell am See with race reporter Tarquin Cooper.
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.
