With just a week to go before the USA Wildwater Team Trials at the same venue, the Glacier Breaker Wildwater race on the Nantahala would serve as a great test of training, boat outfitting and strength. A solid turn out made for some very exciting racing and some upsets. Nearly 30 racers competed, 10 of them juniors or cadets. Wildwater participation is significantly on the rise here in the south and the number of new faces turning up to race was really exciting to witness.
