Maddie Batters on the Saalach River Lofer Austria
Robert McIntyre and Maddie Batters are preparing for their Wildwater World Cup campaign on a low technical Saalach River in Lofer Austria.
The river is a natural one with no dam control and has been progressively dropping all week with no rain happening nor any forecast over the 3 days of racing.
Friday will see the first of the classic races, followed by Sprint races on Saturday for World Cup 2 and on the final day of competition on Sunday another classic race will be run as World Cup 3.
The final World Cup 4 will be a sprint race over in Vienna the following Saturday on a new man made whitewater course.
