Suunto is a proud partner of the Red Bull X-Alps 2009, which is the non-stop hiking and paragliding race. The race kicked off this past Sunday, July 19, from Salzburg and will go on day and night until the first participant reaches the Mediterranean Sea in Monte Carlo. See the route on map.
The intensity, the danger, the competition all add up to make this one of the most unique and inspiring adventures yet seen.
Pierre Carter is South Africa’s sole entrant, and seconded by James Braid is currently lying 18th out of 30 teams. Let’s give him some support and drop a line or two on his Guestbook on the site. Details below
