Here we go again...

After much prevarication I have finally put in my application for the 2013 Red Bull X-Alps.  Applications are open until the end of September; however we are unlikely to find out who is selected until the end of October.

Last time around I was an outside bet and only made the reserve list in the first selection, but then about a month later, I was added to the starting line-up.  This year I think my chances are much better, with a solid performance last time and a 5th place finish, I would hope to make the cut with much more ease.  Having said that, nothing is confirmed until the organising committee announce the athletes, so in the mean time I will continue with my training and preparation and hope I am selected once again.


  1. Good luck with the application Jon!

  2. There goes the summer holidays watching little coloured worms streaking across Europe again. Bring it on! Good luck with the application.
