The award-winning Land Rover Defender will demonstrate its capability and durability as a off-road vehicle for the upcoming Red Bull X-Alps competition. As the event's official vehicle partner, Land Rover will be providing a fleet of Defender 110 support vehicles.

The Red Bull X-Alps athletes will negotiate more than 1,200km of demanding alpine landscape in 12 days, from 20 June to 2 July. Each of the 32 competitors will engage in hiking, ultra-running, mountaineering and paragliding in a true test of human endurance and stamina. On a typical day, the athletes can expect to hike over 50km with vertical ascents of up to 5,000m, burning as many as 6,000 calories.
