Publisher's Summary

The Red Bull X-Alps is the world's most extreme race. With only a paraglider and a pair of hiking boots athletes attempt to cross the Alps from Salzburg in Austria to Monaco. In this book, British athlete Jon Chambers brings you even closer to the action and reveals his personal story of his 2011 race. In doing so he reveals the harsh reality of what it takes to compete in this uniquely demanding challenge: the physical and mental hardship, equipment, extreme conditions, strategic thinking and lucky escapes.

    "Lacking depth"

    I hate to say this, but I feel like this book was lacking in depth. It was a straight forward account of the actions taken during the race, but it left little reflection on how participating in such an event might impact your life. I would have liked for the book to answer why someone would be attracted to something like this and what it adds to their life by having done it. It is however, probably an excellent resource for someone wishing to complete this race.
