It's been coined as The Most Wonderful Time Of Year
by many. No, this is not Christmas that we're talking about, it's The Green Race
- steep, technical, demanding, ass kicking, precision, class V creek racing.
Shane Benedict (Liquid Logic owner
) wrote a good article with his thoughts on the most qualified individuals to take top honors at this years race. There are a few Olympians in the mix, and local paddlers like Pat Keller, Andrew Holcombe and Isaac Levinson. Check out this link, it's the info that you need if you are going to be following the action from afar (or near).
It's fun to watch a clean run, with a time possibly under 4 min 30sec (according to Shane - a sub 4:30 is possible this year). But what is better than seeing a huge, menacing crash.
