This is a tremendous effort: Bernhard Hug (SUI), Philipp Reiter (GER), David Wallmann (AUT) as well as Janelle and Mark Smiley (USA) arrived in Nice, France. In a record time of just 36 days, the five athletes completed their crossing of the main ridge of the Alps from Vienna to Nice. At Red Bull Der Lange Weg, the world’s longest ski tour, they covered 1721 kilometres in distance and 89.644 metres of cumulative elevation gain on skis and on foot. Altogether, they were on the move for 375 hours.
