The skywalk X-Alps Team 2019

Likeable. Ready to win.

skywalk will kick off the Red Bull X-Alps 2019 with six strong teams. Three are experienced X-Alps legends and three are highly motivated newcomers. But whether finisher or rookie – all six pilots have already proven themselves in international competitions. From Austria’s Paul Guschlbauer, who can look back on four X-Alps participations in which he reached third place three times, to Markus Anders, who won the Bordairrace series in 2018 and took a terrific second place at the Dolomity Superfly 2018. No less experienced than the six athletes in the limelight are their supporters. Almost all of them have already crossed large mountain range in the hike & fly style and successfully completed tricky outdoor races.
