Hike, Fly, Sleep, Repeat

Published on
12 June 2022

Two weeks to go until the official race start and here comes our first blog post! Our team is currently still in Austria (and Italy) and is preparing for the trip to Hondarribia. This week it’s all about packing suitcases, checking equipment, ticking off checklists so we can leave next Thursday! X-Pyr 2022, here we come!

With two participations in this year’s Bordairrace we are already in the final training preparations since April. Hike, Fly, Sleep, Repeat – that’s how our days currently look like … well, and a bit of work if time allows 😉 Fortunately, a few injuries couldn’t keep us from participating and so Patrick continues to train diligently for the upcoming X-Pyr. Flying, flying, flying as much as possible, in between some running or hiking. Rest-Day? Rather not … 😉 

Our plan is to arrive in the Pyrenees in the middle of next week, explore the route and get a feel for the terrain again. We’re glad we’ve already been able to get to know and explore quite a bit in 2018, but getting to know the route in advance as much as possible is most definitely a good idea. 

In the next post, we can finally take you on a trip towards Spain. We are looking forward to the adventure, the competition and – of course – the other teams. It will certainly be a breathtaking journey with many surprises … !


Without them, the X-Pyr wouldn't exist.
