On the 16th of June 2019 the 9th edition of Red Bull X-Alps starts.
An integral part: Wagrain-Kleinarl as a mandatory stopover and host of the prologue and the previous week as preparation for the toughest adventure race in the world.
The 32 athletes from 20 nations, including two women, have only to walk and with the paraglider past a still secret number of turnpoints from Salzburg to Monaco. The 1,100 kilometer route will once again play a key role in 2019.
Will the reigning five-time winner Christian Maurer from Switzerland prevail again, or can another athlete win the varied race? Experience the participants up close in the middle of the Salzburg Alps and follow your favorites online in the live tracking on the further route to the finish.
