After 10 days in Mezzanna the team is ready for its first day of racing. As today marks the first day of the 2005 Junior World Wildwater Canoe/Kayak Championships - River Noce Italy.......
It is uplifting to see European teams still running the course perfecting lines we had down packed 4 days ago. Bedford has finnaly gotten over he pre race stress and Missons shoulder (sore from the shallow river and numerous rock strikes) is back 100%.
The time taken to learn and perfect the course and then have a solid taper to peak this weekend I believe as team coach puts us in a very strong position for success.
Whilst today is only Non-stop practice and with our team only running at 70% of maximum effort, it gives the team the perfect practice run for World Championships tommorrow.
Wish these boys luck!
