The Red Bull X-Alps is often referred to as the toughest adventure race in the world. Highly trained athletes endure the harshest weather conditions, physical exhaustion and prove what a tremendous force sheer willpower can be.
On their journey from Salzburg in Austria to Monaco, they cross some of the highest peaks in Europe and travel approximately 630 miles using nothing but a paraglider and their own two feet. While no technical or outside assistance is allowed, every athlete is bringing his GoPro HERO3 camera along to document the race of their lives from a unique and intimate perspective. The footage they collect is truly exceptional, watch out for the edits to drop soon.
