A Day at the Green Race

first_img“Give up?” the woman asked as I headed back to my truck after walking past her a few minutes earlier. I was parked aside Green River Cove Road in Saluda, North Carolina for the Green Race, the well-known kayak race on a section of whitewater called the Green River Narrows. The Narrows include the “Gorilla”, a Class V rapid that is the centerpiece of the 23 year-old race.I’d walked up to the trailhead, heard that the two-mile hike-in to the race was four miles, and doubled back to see if I could find a water bottle (unlikely) or an old Clif Bar (possible). I found instead three lacrosse balls, Downy wrinkle remover, a tarp, and a dog blanket. I turned back around.Pat Keller finished second at the 2018 Green Race.

Thanks.” She hands me a black and white copy of a map with a pink highlight indicating the route to the race.“You up for this? It’s four miles in there. Then you have to come out,” said her daughter. “I went in there the other day and I ended up all over the place.” She shows me another map that highlighted her own recent hike. I was impressed by how well she documented what, to appearances, looked like a wayward drift into delirium.“I’m in better shape than I look,” I said.“You look alright,” she said. The flatness to ‘alright’ suggested that I’d cut bait two miles in.With that, I hiked in, and ultimately joined 1,000 others to watch the Green Race some four and a half miles into the woods. The last part of the trail to get down to the race is an interesting thing. Along with a throng of spectators you snake down a steep hillside grasping rocks, roots and a rope line. By rock climbing standards a modest descent, by spectating standards, a good effort.2018 Green Race champion Dane Jackson hangs with some fans. Photo by Marc HuntAt the bottom, there’s immediate payoff. Spectators line the right side of the river and the racing kayaks break up a backdrop of autumn browns and yellows with an abrupt flash of pink or a blue as they plummet through the whitewater. The crowd whoops and hollers and the echo merges and lifts up and out of the gorge as a single roar that temporarily supplants the roar of the river.I drift up the sometimes slippery rocks on the river’s right side, ascending a slow half-mile upward to the heart of the race. En route, I step to the side as a stretcher takes out an injured spectator who to appearances is unconscious.Once on a rock perch, I take in the race. It’s my first visit to the Green Race, and to get a better feel for it I talk with a few nearby racers who have completed their afternoon’s runs.“It’s about my 15th time. I come back every year because not only is this one of the best deep creeks in the whole world, but it’s an amazing group of talented, top-notch whitewater paddlers,” said Clay Wright, 50, of Rock Island, Tennessee. “We race together and then we hang out together in just an amazing scene.”‘Queen of the Green’ Adriene Levknecht won the Green Race for the tenth time. Photo by Marc HuntWhen prompted as to whether anything stands out about this year’s event, Wright doesn’t hesitate. “I feel like the average age of the race just dropped 10 or 20 years this year. It’s the most amazing thing,” he says with a broad smile. “There are a lot of racers under 20, and there are a lot of racers under 18 and it’s awesome to see the next generation stepping up and riding the lightning.”To his right is Heidi Walsh, who is visiting the States from her native England and participated in the race for the first time.“I’m on an exchange with the University of Colorado. So I’ve come to America and instead of going to University, I’ve just gone kayaking,” said Walsh, 20. In her travels she’s fallen in with a group of fellow kayakers who encouraged her to attend the race.Colin Hunt drops through a chute on the Green. Photo by Marc Hunt“They were like ‘Why don’t you come? The Green Race is huge.’ I naturally assumed they meant ‘Why don’t you race?’ not ‘Why don’t you watch?’ so I bought a bib,” said Walsh. “The next thing you know they were like, ‘Oh no, we meant sit on the side and watch.’ So I had to train up and I don’t regret it at all.”Walsh sports the remnants of a fresh scrape on her upper lip. “For me personally, I’ve had a rough time training. I didn’t always have good lines and today the top section was my best run that I’ve done so far here,” she said. “I’m really pleased that when I feel sick with nerves and I’m really scared, I know that I can still bring it.”The Green Race is held annually on the first weekend of November.

SIS may appeal High Court judgement on ARC data rights

first_img John Williamson to oversee UK Tote Group’s international growth August 28, 2020 Betfred counters Oppenheimer bid in race to rescue Phumelela August 26, 2020 Related Articles The High Court case around data rights between the two main horseracing broadcasters to the betting industry has come to an end, with  Sports Information Services (SIS) being found guilty of breaching the confidentiality of Arena Racing Company’s Raceday Data, but not on the more serious charges of conspiracy by unlawful means or copyright infringement of database rights. SIS said it may still appeal the judgement.The court case goes back to the launch of The Racing Partnership (TRP) in January 2017 when Ladbrokes, Coral and Betfred dragged its heels about taking the new service. TRP was set up to exclusively license media rights from horserace meetings at Arena Racing Company (ARC) and other independent racecourses, direct to retail bookmakers and other betting operators. Customers including William Hill, Paddy Power and the majority of independent operators contracted directly with TRP to receive a media rights package comprising live data and audio-visual coverage for fixtures from six racecourses (Doncaster, Lingfield Park, Southwell, Royal Windsor, Wolverhampton and Worcester) from the start of 2017.The retail estates of Ladbrokes, Coral and Betfred did not sign up until later that summer when TRP’s rights portfolio increased to cover 22 racetracks. In the interim period the bookmakers decided to compile enough data from other sources to create an unofficial service from the Tote’s presence on-course and other sources to be supplied by SIS, without any of them paying TRP. TRP took immediate legal action and commenced High Court proceedings against them in January 2017.The Hon Mr Justice Zacaroli dismissed the conspiracy and database infringements, but said that SIS had breached the confidentiality of ARC’s Raceday Data. He argued that a reasonable person in the position of SIS would have appreciated that the Tote acquired the information in circumstances imposing obligations of confidence, which would be breached by use of that information otherwise than by the Tote for the limited purpose of pool betting.In an issued statement, SIS said: “We are naturally happy that the judge has found in our favour on two of the three claims and rejected any suggestion of conspiracy by unlawful means, and the allegation of infringement of copyright and database rights made against SIS. We have taken note of his judgement that a technical breach of confidence occurred in regard to our use of Raceday Data emanating from TRP courses, whilst acknowledging that SIS did take precautions, and acted upon a warranty provided by the Tote, which had supplied the data in question.”The company added: “We will be reviewing this judgement and any possible appeal with our advisers.”Understandably, ARC CEO Martin Cruddace has gone in hard following the judgment: “We would like to thank the Hon. Mr Justice Zacaroli for the diligence and work with which he has clearly approached his judgment in a complex case. We are pleased that the High Court has unequivocally recognised the validity and enforceability of our exclusive rights in the Raceday Data created and collected on racecourses and therefore owned by them. We welcome the fact that the judgment gives a ruling on the rights in and protection of Raceday Data which is important to all of British Horse Racing.“It is clear and, in our view, beyond any reasonable dispute that Ladbrokes, Coral and Betfred were only able to not enter into media rights agreements with TRP, on proper commercial terms (between Jan 1st and late July 2017), because of their access to Raceday data unlawfully supplied by SIS, and it follows that SIS is responsible for the very significant damages to which TRP is entitled.“We will now expeditiously commence the proceedings to determine the quantum of damages and will continue to monitor any infringements of our rights and take appropriate action wherever such infringements are found.” Share Share Submit Flutter moves to refine merger benefits against 2020 trading realities August 27, 2020 StumbleUponlast_img read more
