Seven outstanding alpinists from all over the world were selected to cross the main Alpine ridge from east to west. They are people who have not known each other before and have never mastered an expedition in this composition. But one thing unites them: the love for the mountains and the passion for unusual challenges. At Red Bull The Long Road, they are successful when four of them reach Nice in less than 41 days.
“It was hard,” says Bernhard Hug in Nice. “Every day, you need to recharge your energy to re-focus and move forward step by step. The 14-hour days have cost a lot of physical energy. And we had to adapt a lot, reorganize again and again, because the weather was very difficult. It takes a lot of mental energy. Therefore, the salvation is very great that we have done it! “
