Racing for the third position Guschlbauer and Outters spent the last day hiking and flying together. In the end, they teamed up and crossed the line together, securing joint third on the podium. It was a remarkable demonstration of sportsmanship and friendship that this race is so famous for.

If there was a theme to the Red Bull X-Alps 2019 it was performance – performance on the ground and in the air. From the 9000m of vertical ascent athletes completed in Switzerland to the long-distance flights across the main spine of the Alps-, the level this edition took a leap up. As race veteran Tom de Dorlodot said when he crossed the line at the end, "The level is so high now. It was not like that before".
Six more athletes were able to complete the route before the clock has stopped:
6. Simon Oberrauner (Austria)
7. Gaspard Petiot (France)
8. Patrick von Känel (Switzerland)
9. Aaron Durogati (Italy)
10. Tom de Dorlodot (Belgium)
