Merrell/Zanfel Adventure to Face Montana's Rivers at Flood Stage During Primal Quest

Adventure racing team Merrell/Zanfel Adventure completed its check-in procedures at Big Sky Resort in Southwestern Montana, and now has some time to cool its heels in the frigid Gallatin River.

An e-mail update from team captain Robyn Benincasa earlier today illustrates what's on the minds of many athletes about to take on Primal Quest Montana, a 500-mile race on foot, bike, boat and riverboard, through the wilds near Yellowstone National Park:

"The snow looks like it's melting a bit, which just means the water is higher and faster, which means I'm scared. :). They keep telling us they'll make sure we're safe-ish, but the water is officially at flood stage, so who knows. Eeek!"

WEE HAW! Robyn, I'm glad you're getting your river training started early. I bet the rivers up there are just like the Belize River in March... Don't train too hard and have a good time...hugh, never mind, you always have a good time.
