Day 3 – Maxime Pinot retires

Published on
25 June 2024

Two-times runner-up of the X-Pyr and race favourite for this edition has retired with knee problems. Maxime nearly won in 2022, but was pipped to the post on the last section of the course when he was overtaken my Swiss champion Chrigel Maurer.

Maxime came to the race with a brand new, made-to-measure harness, Neo’s Moonlight. This harness has been seen for one of the first times at the X-Pyr in 2024. and was a submarine-style harness that weighs an incredible 1.5 kg.

Not only is Maxime the World and European Champion, he is an ace hike & fly pilot. We are gutted to see him leaving the race, but wish him a swift recovery and that he comes back the next edition fit, well and ready to go!

Without them, the X-Pyr wouldn't exist.
