Namaste, thanks a lot to all my supporters, friends, pilots, and everybody who helped me to be part in the RedBull XAlps race! Without the support from you, it wouldn´t be possible, you made it possible! I´m very thankful and happy that it was possible to be in the Red Bull XAlps race. The video below is from my last sleeping bivy in the Pinzgau under a rock.
This was my first time competing - but I hope that it wasn´t my last time. I have had a great time, learned a lot of new things (value of time, food, water and unlimited pain in my legs), made some mistakes and wrong decisions - and gained a lot of experience out of it. I now know how to be better prepared and what is really important for the Red Bull Xalps race: e.g. need to train more running, learn more about the alps flying and weather conditions, as well navigation & use of flying instruments (all those things which I never needed to use and took care in the past). RedBull X-Alps is a tough race and even my legs and my body are in pain and feel like disconnected, I´m already motivated and look forward to go further in the next XAlps race. My full respect for all the other athletes - and I hope to see all of them and some of you in Monaco for the final celebration.
