I would like to take a moment to thank all my supporters, friends, pilots and everybody else who helped me to be part of the RedBull X-Alps 2013 race! Without the support from you, it wouldn´t be possible, you are the one who made it possible! I´m very thankful to have joined the Red Bull X-Alps race.
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), I made some mistakes and wrong decisions - and gained a lot of experience out of it. But I now know how to be better prepared and the things that are really important for the Red Bull X-alps race: e.g. need to train more running, learn more about flying in the alps and about weather conditions, as well as navigation & use of flying instruments (all those things which I never needed to use in the past). Red Bull X-Alps was a tough race, my legs and my body were in lots of pain and felt almost disconnected from my body. But I´m very motivated and look forward to go further in the next Red Bull X-Alps 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.
Adventure will continue throughout my whole life, my life is adventure and anything is possible!
