Chrigel Maurer on 2017 X-Apls Route: “It’s going to be difficult”
As it turns out, even the best in the world are a bit nervous about this year’s Red Bull X-Alps. Chrigel Maurer, four time X-Alps winner, had some reservations about the new route.
“I was sure organisers would do a new route but I was really hoping for one of two Turnpoints in Switzerland or France so when I saw this I was a bit disappointed. But it’s a new challenge, it’s good to see a new area in the south of Austria in the race and I’m looking forward to the new adventure.”
