RED BULL X-ALPS 2007 IS ON!

RED BULL X-ALPS 2007 IS ON!

30 athletes from around the world racing day and night across the Alps, tracked by the most advanced media technology around to deliver thrilling stories over three weeks to an audience of millions.

In 2007, Red Bull X-Alps will be even harsher and more exciting than before. Solidifying its reputation as one of the world’s toughest adventure races, the competitors will be faced with an exhausting journey of deprivation, pain and hazard.


New route and start date

As a novelty for 2007, the race will start in the world heritage site of Hallstatt. From there, the participants will hike up the Dachstein, cross the glacier by foot and launch their paragliders from a windswept, icy cornice perched perilously over thousands of feet of vertical wall, the Dachstein south face.

From this first take-off spot the athletes’ long and cumbersome journey continues, leading them across the most beautiful peaks of the Alps including the turning points of Dachstein (Austria), Marmolada (Italy), Eiger (Switzerland), Mont Blanc (France) and Mont Gros (France) – until they finally reach their goal in Monaco.

The new start date for the race is July 23rd 2007.


Athlete registration now open

All athletes truly willing and able to compete in the toughest adventure race of their life are invited to register on www.redbullxalps.com!

All athletes who have made it to the final round will have to attend a test camp in June to verify their endurance, paragliding and orientation skills so that the Red Bull X-Alps committee can get an overall impression of their body and mind. The athlete selection process for the final round should be finished by the end of January 07.

Red Bull X-Alps 2007 - Be prepared for an adventure that will exceed your boldest expectations!
