Road to the Mountains: Episode 4

Nick Troutman catches up with Rush Sturges for a few hard-earned race tips

Nick Troutman’s Road to the Mountains series tracks his family travels with wife Emily Jackson across the country as they prepare for the 2016 GoPro Mountain Games, June 9-12 in Vail, Colo. Episode 4 follows Troutman to the banks of Washington’s Little White Salmon River to glean a few hard-earned steep-creek race tips from fellow competitor Rush Sturges.

Stay tuned for more POV-shot installments of Troutman caravaning cross-country from Tennessee to Colorado, the long way, across the Pacific Northwest, as he details training tips for the multi-discipline ‘pros-versus-joes’ games, including interviews with fellow athletes and competitors, “and lots of fun and shenanigans along the way.”
