Aaron Durogati was the pilot on the winning team, Red Bull, at Rise&Fall 2019, Austria’s multi-sport winter team race.
The eighth edition of the event took place on Saturday 14 December 2019. It combines ski-touring, paragliding, mountain biking and downhill skiing.
Team Red Bull finished less than half a minute ahead of Chrigel Maurer’s team (Teamwork Schweiz) although Chrigel completed the paragliding leg fastest (in 5 minutes, 3.9 seconds).
The task was:
Ski tourers sprint 1.3km up the Ahorn valley ski run to Gasthof Wiesenhof; paragliders fly down and sprint 400m; mountain bikers pedal 3.7km with 430m ascent back to Gasthof Wiesenhof; skiers/boarders race down an obstacle course to the finish line.
Mountainshop Hörhager Ladies won the women’s classification, with Stephanie Kröll as the team’s paraglider pilot.
