Christian Maurer and Thomas Theurillat are the reigning champions and four-time winners of the Red Bull X-Alps, a grueling contest whereby competitors race from Salzburg, Austria, to Monaco – a distance of 1,600 kilometers [1,000 miles] – covering the entire distance only on foot or by paraglider. While Maurer embraces the physical challenge, Theurillat follows by car, providing support, food, water and instructions. getAbstract believes teams across all disciplines can draw important lessons about collaboration and endurance from tales of their exploits.
