Stephan Haase, Fun Training For X-Alps
Ozone X-Alps Team Pilot, Stephan Haase, flew in a new multi-sport relay race in the Oetztal, near Soelden, Austria. The Uvex Peak to Creek race gathered a total of 24 world-class athletes from eight different disciplines; skiing, mountain biking, mountain running, climbing, road cycling, ski mountaineering, paragliding, and kayaking. In the final rafting stage of the race, all athletes paddled together as a team. Stephan Haase flew the Swift2 in difficult start conditions and was the first paraglider to arrive and perform the “pass off” to his teammate who took the kayaking segment. Afterwards all eight took to some swift-water, reaching the goal for the first podium position.
