There are some great legendary stories about racing on the Soca River in Northwest Slovenia. The beauty of the area is very reminiscent of Jackson Hole, WY. The river starts off a a beautiful class II at the upper reaches of the race course. The Soca then gradually builds in difficulty until you reach a boulder strewn canyon with 3 minutes of class IV mayhem. This year, the USA Wildwater Team is making their own legends by beating some of the very best racers in the world.
