In January, the U.S. Men’s Rafting Team pushed for more than 39 hours on one hell of a custom raft to attempt a record-setting descent of the Grand Canyon.
White water rapids in total darkness, hours of flatwater paddling, and a 48-foot vessel all went into the Colorado River’s Grand Canyon speed record attempt.
The training, route strategy, raft creation, and final effort all go into “The Time Travelers,” a beautiful 18-minute film by Forest Woodward and Brenden Leonard.
