There are two stand up paddle events at this year’s games: a sprint race and a surf cross, an every-man-for-himself, mass start race.
Contenders: U.S. Ski Teamer Steve Nyman is planning to compete. Also look for SUP power couple Nikki Gregg and Dan Gavere.
Beta: If you’re not ready to take on the river, C4 Watermen is putting on SUP demos in a pool in Gear Town.
