I am covering the X-Alps for the next two days. We are currently on top of Salzburg's house mountain, and we just watched 30 top fit endurance athletes who started the Red Bull X-Alps take off. They will be hiking and flaying 818 km along the postcard like mountain range from Salzburg to Monaco. Stopping at impressive mountain tops such as the Watzman, Grossglockner, Matterhorn, Marmolada and Mont Blanc.
The cool thing about the event is that possible to follow the athletes via live tracking on google map! All the guys are caring GPS device that send all the details via bluetooth to a mobile phone and that phone transfers the information every two minutes.
