Kaspar Henny gewinnt das 1. Red Bull Xalps

Das Team um Kaspar Henny gewinnt mit einem souveränen Start-Ziel Sieg nach 11 Tagen 22 Stunden 55 Minuten 30 Sekunden die erste Austragung des Red Bull XAlps! Gegen Mittag erreichten Kaspar Henny und Maja Walther den Mont Gros, der Rest war nur noch Formsache. Hut ab vor dieser Leistung, wir gratulieren!

David Dagault und Stefan Bocks konnten zwar noch auf rund 6 Stunden an Chäspi herankommen, der Vorsprung aus dem Wallis war jedoch zu gross, um den Dominator dieses faszinierenden Wettkampfs nochmals ernsthaft in Verlegenheit zu bringen. Diese beiden Piloten werden die Ränge 2 und 3 unter sich ausmachen. Leider ist Urs Lötscher im Laufe des Tages auf Rang 4 zurückgefallen. Nach einer kurzen Nacht mit nur 4 Stunden Schlaf stieg Kaspar ‘Chäspi’ Henny heute morgen hinauf auf den Mont Gros ob Monaco um gegen 12 Uh nach Monaco abzugleiten. Seine Freundin und ein richtiger Fanclub feierten Chäspi mit Kuhglocken und Champagner.Dieser Film zeigt den Zieleinlauf… und er ist jedes Kilobyte wert.

Interwiew mit dem Sieger Kaspar Henny:

The biggest victory! The final competition? An interview with Kaspar Henny.

Kaspar Henny, 35, from Obersaxen. Educated ranger, paragliding teacher, athlete: Since 1993 in the paragliding worldcup, fifth in the overall ranking in 1999 and 2000, third at the European Championships, three times World Champion with the Swiss National Team. His biggest success: winner of Red Bull X-Alps.

How are your feet?
Quite good. Before the start I had trouble with my knee, but that calmed down during the race. On the second competition day my tendon got swollen from all the straight walking. I think I didn’t prepare myself well enough for that. I mean who is so stupid to put on a 20-kilogramm backback and to walk 50 kilometers on a main road? This injury was really very painful on the fourth day after hiking 40 kilometers to Schuls in the rain.


The decisive moment in the race?
Maybe already the first flight from Dachstein to shortly before Zell am See. We had really difficult conditions – weak thermic, low cloud base and the valley winds, were hard to judge. Most of the competitors were forced to land. I recognized a wind-protected spot, which got heated up by the sun and I thought: maybe it has enough thermic? And it had. That’s how I could gain a big advantage right away.


The best decision?
To walk up the Wildkogel the same night, after landing in Zell am See and not to take it easy and rest and take the launching spot at the Schmittenhoehe, where the others would have overtaken me the next day. That’s how I increased my advantage.

Your worst decision?
On the eleventh day near Cuneo. I was walking very far to reach a launching spot. And that altough the weather forecasts and clouds didn’t look very good. I had 20 extra kilometers and almost half a day to finally wait up there and only be able to glide into the valley.

Your strategy to the victory?
I planned my daily routes carefully – that I always was at the launching spot at noon right befor the thermic to rise. I planned my days with an optimistic route and and a minimum goal. When I reached my daily goal – perfect. If I had to land before the minimum goal, I tried everything to still reach it. I always sticked to that strategy, which hasn’t been wise all the time – look at Cuneo.

Your best memory during the race?
When I was flying over Obersaxen, my hometown. I never had such great flying conditions before.

Your next plans?
I am taking off for at least four months now and will go to North India together with my girlfriend. We will do some trekking tours with our bicycles there. And after that I have to see.

You stopped participating in the World Cup last year. Was Red Bull X-Alps your last competition?
Pffff. Could be. The final decision is not taken yet
