Green Race 2007

Gorilla Graham racing the New Everest
Last weekend was the 12th annual Green River Narrows race. 124 racers made it out there Saturday at high noon to get fired up and race the Narrows home to the infamous Gorilla rapid(pictured above) in front of some 500 spectators. It was one of the best Green races to date with record times in almost every category.
Andrew Holcombe walked away with the glass this year with a new record time 4:27. Pat Keller was only a second behind him in the long boat but won the Iron man, combined  long boat + short boat , setting a record time in the short boat class with a 4:40!!!
There were a lot of fast people out there representing Pyranha. The Everest was a popular choice and looks to be a great boat for racing too! Shannon Carroll came out from California to race with some of the fastest girls around and ended up tieing for 1st place in the short boat class with Adriene Levknecht. Robin Betz was the fastest lady in the long boat with a new womens record 5:23.
I wish I had more pictures…these are some that I’ve stolen off the internet…
