CASCADE, Idaho - The Payette River Games have just released their 2015 race course information with course changes and board restriction rules. Take a look at what to expect for this year's race below.
Race Course Change
SUP-er G Race:
We have changed last years 1.5 mile Sprint and will now be featuring a slalom race thereby eliminating most of the flat water racing from the race. The SUP-er G race will begin just north of the top feature, go up river for about ¼ of a mile and then turn downriver through the park, racing against the clock in a technical giant slalom type of course.
The Xross will be similar in format as PRG14 however the course will change throughout the knockout period to become increasingly more challenging. Plenty of true river skills challenges for even the most elite paddlers on the planet
PRG15 Board Rules
- You will be allowed to register only ONE Board for the entire weekend for BOTH “SUP-er G” and “Xross” events
- Your board selection should be based upon the skills needed to compete in both the Xross and SUP-er G races.
- Boards will be limited to 11 feet in length
- Any type of board can be used (carbon, inflatable, hard)
Course Design and Race Organizer
Dan Gavere will not compete and will be both race organizer and course designer.
From the PRG Board
Thank you to the many athletes we solicited to canvass their opinions on Board rules. The Board of the PRG and Dan Gavere are extremely excited for this years event, which promises to be bigger and better than ever. See you in June.
