Can Great Britain’s Joe Morley defend his title as reigning champion of the Adidas Sickline Extreme Kayak World Championships? On October 2, 48 racers from over 20 countries will challenge the 25-year old Morley for his spot atop the podium. The race will draw athletes from across the spectrum of kayaking including American freestyle and extreme boater Dane Jackson, the Serrasolses brothers of Spain, and Kiwi slalom racer Mike Dawson. For the seventh straight year, participants will test their skills head to head on the glacial-fed Class V whitewater of Ötztal, Austria where anything can happen.
