This coming Saturday, January 14th, is the 4th annual Alseseca River race in Tlapocoyan, Veracruz, MX. Tom is on-site with a group of LAKS paddlers, training to be part of the race. Anticipating the race, I asked him for the latest news:
“Isaac Levinson, Eric Deguil, Pablo McCandless, and Isidro Sobranes seem to be the favorites to place in the race. Isaac won the Green Race this year in the long boat class, and Eric won the Green Race in short boat class. Isidro, the highest ranking Mexican paddler, came in second last year. They are all practicing on the course everyday. The water level is a little higher then previous years so the times should be shorter. In the short boat class, it’s anyone’s guess who will finish in the top three. There is a lot of excitement at Aventurec about the coming race.”
I’ll keep you posted with news and times. Here is a link to the Alseseca Race website.
