You don’t have to head to the southern hemisphere to enjoy some winter flying time.
In fact, it can be super rewarding, link in bio!

There are two options for northern hemisphere paragliders at this time of year. Put on a pair of skis or head south!

But with so many options, it’s hard to know where to choose. With the help of @xcmag's Ed Ewing, we select five of the best. Link in bio!

When Red Bull X-Alps wasn’t enough for one summer @tomdedorlodot  had another project in mind - restoring an old sailboat!

He’s taken to the sea with his wife Sofia with a plan to sail – and fly – around the world. Follow the link in bio to see where they’ve been!

Simon Oberrauner (AUT4) is in hot pursuit of Ferdinand van Schelven (NLD) and has closed the gap to 1km. "Ferdie is a tough guy!" he shouts. Can he catch him and claim 4th place? Watch their epic battle in the final hour of the race at win.gs/LiveTracking #redbullxalps #adventure #paragliding

Good morning Red Bull X-Alps! Chrigel (SUI1) may have reached Monaco and claimed the title, but that doesn't mean it's all over. The athletes still have until 10.53am CEST to race. Paul Guschlbauer (AUT1) is closest to the finish, but to reach Turnpoint 7 in such a short time would be a massive achievement. Otherwise, it's a battle for position. Nick Neynens (NZL) is currently in 10th, but pulled his Ledlenser Night Pass in the hope of moving up the ranks. Such effort in the last few hours of the race is a true mark of adventure!
