2015 Red Bull X-Alps teaser

The Red Bull X-Alps is one of the most challenging adventure races in the world.

This year, 33 athletes from 18 countries will be on the start line in Salzburg to commence the race that finishes in Monaco in the south of France.

The athletes chose to cross the Alps on foot or on a paraglider, and will cover a distance of roughly 1000km. For a number of paragliding adventurists, this race is an objective, the ultimate race, which requires a high level of piloting and physical fitness.

Each team is made up of an athlete and an assistant. The assistant’s role is limited to providing food, basic logistics and weather information during the race. Technical assistance is not permitted and the athletes are only allowed to move towards their goal between the hours of 05h00 and 22h00.

Don’t miss the Rock The Outdoor coverage, starting on the 5th July 2015.
