This is a special episode of the Cloudbase Mayhem to give all of the fans of the race a little insight into the greatest game on Earth directly from the perspective of the athletes. Live Tracking is amazing, but it misses a lot of the emotion and the background, and these interviews with the athletes take us behind the curtain. In this first of three installments we hear from Nick Neynens (NZ 1), Kinga Masztalerz (NZ 2), Aaron Durogati (ITA 1), and Gaspard Petiot (FRA 2). Most of these interviews took place just a few days after the end of the race and if you dig the Red Bull X-Alps, or have aspirations for some day taking it on you’re going to love it. And…you’re going to learn some pretty interesting techniques for staying awake in the air! Enjoy.
For all the athletes we hear:
- What did you most underestimate?
- What was your best and worst day?
- What was your biggest mistake?
- Will you do it again?
- What was the most critical support you got from your team?
- What was the coolest fan experience you had?
