Dear Wildwater Racers and Friends:

The Wilderness Voyageurs 2008 US Wildwater Team Trials are history. Twenty-two wildwater athletes braved the Cheat Narrows in an attempt to earn a spot on the 2008 USA Wildwater Team. Read more about the Team Trials - then check out the results and the excellent video of the Sprint race. All can be found in the first article. In the subsequent article you will learn who will represent the USA in the World Championships, the Masterís World Championships, the World Cups and Junior Pre-World Championships all being held in Europe this summer. Our friends that are hosting the Wildwater World Championships this summer have also been busy. See the link to the 3rd "article" to get an idea of the race course for the Worlds.

March and April are also the time for many regional Wildwater races. We are pleased to include articles (with results) from two races in the Mid Atlantic Downriver Series (MADS), the first race in the 2008 Northwest Downriver Cup, and the Glenwood Canyon Wildwater Jubilee (hosted by the Great Blue Heron Canoe and Kayak Club).

Check out the 2008 USA Wildwater Calendar to see which races are scheduled for the rest of the year. And don't forget the Western Junior Wildwater Team Trials. This event is being held in conjunction with FIBArk on June 13-15. The Western Junior Team Trials is the final event used to determine which athletes will be on the 2008 USA Junior Wildwater Team.
