Markus Anders – Bad but hopefully wise news

Published on
01 May 2022

I have decided not to compete in the X-Pyr. The reason is that the risk is too high that I can massively worsen the healing process of my broken femur.

So far I can’t complain about the healing process at all, as a lot has happened in the last 7 weeks. My mobility has been restored to some extent. In principle, I can walk without crutches, but my gait is anything but clean. At the end of May, light hike & fly should be possible again. It is important for me now to listen to my body and not to do too much too fast. I would love to run up the mountains again yesterday.

I therefore want to give my body time to heal without pressure and stress and will probably follow the X-Pyr again this year in live tracking. I hope for a very exciting race and an interesting route.

I wish all the teams a great experience and an exciting race. I will definitely follow it.

Note from the X-Pyr organization

We wish Markus the best of recoveries. And, of course, you know that X-Pyr 2024 will still be here.

On the other hand, this means the entry into the race of one of the teams on the waiting list. The one formed by Edouard Potel and Jerôme Alixant. Welcome!.

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