Red Bull X-Alps athlete Jon Chambers has published a remarkable first-person account of competing in the world’s best paragliding race.

Called Hanging in There the account is a very readable, fast-paced exploration of what it’s like to actually take part in the Red Bull X-Alps.

The book is available through Amazon as a download for the Kindle. However, you don’t need a Kindle to read it – simply search for and download the Kindle App to your smartphone, tablet or computer and it will work that way.

The first chapter is available to view for free on Amazon. Check it out here: Hanging in There
