Red Bull X-Alps 2015

Here at zooom we have been busy selecting the 31 athletes who will take part in the 2015 edition of the Red Bull X-Alps.

The adventure race challenges the athletes to cross the Alps from east to west covering around 1,000km and finishing in Monaco, traveling only by paragliders or by foot. 

On the 29th of October we trickle fed the hungry Red Bull X-Alps Facebook fans by revealing six athletes at a time in five posts spread out over the day ... leaving the start attraction till last; that's Chrigel Maurer, who will be back to defend his 3-time crown.

As well as some familiar faces there will be a few new ones and for the first time since 2005 this includes to female athletes, Dawn Westrum, a former US soldier, and Yvonne Dathe, a four-time German long-distance paragliding champion. 

The Red Bull X-Alps was created over a decade ago by Hannes Arch, Red Bull, and ourselves. We were there right from the start and have helped to make the race what it is today, bringing it into the homes of hundreds of thousands of fans around the globe. The 2015 edition will be the 7th edition of the race and for sure another unforgettable experience.
