In 2015, Rock the Outdoor had the chance to meet Team Red Bull X-Alps (GB) in Salzburg. Steve Nash (left) and Richard Bungay had agreed to present to Emma Casanova (also webùaster of the English version of the site and who know Steve very well) the mandatory safety equipment that every pilot must wear during the competition.
English pilot Steve Nash has not died after a paragliding accident during Spiralling Steppes 2 adventure in Mongolia. Continuing his adventure alone, he was robbed and killed by thugs.
Initially, Steve Nash was accompanied by Gareth Aston for a trip to the Khangai Mountains in central Mongolia. After many hard landings, Aston had to abandon because of back problems (august 31 th). Steve decided to continue the expedition alone. But the next day, his family and friends following the tracking Spot did not see movements and had no messages. His lifeless body was found with his full equipment. However, he lacked the money and passport. Nash had been robbed and killed by unknown assailants.
Steve Nash was a British adventurer pilot who participated in 2 times in the Redbull X-Alps. The British pilots community lost a great pilot known internationally and highly regarded for his modesty, accessibility and always very positive.
We extend our sympathy and condolences to his family and friends.
