Lincoln Dews has been quietly training behind the scenes for his upcoming mammoth SUP expedition of paddling both the Yukon1000 and the Yukon River Quest.
It’s been a while since we heard from Lincoln Dews and now he has uncovered his major goal for 2022. Let’s hear from Lincoln;
I’ve been a little quiet on paddling front recently, mainly due to the size of this project and my hesitancy that is was actually achievable…
But with only 9 weeks until race day I’m getting excited about what we’re trying to achieve. I’ll be racing the both longest non-stop, and second longest paddle races (on any craft) in a single month. The Yukon1000 & Yukon River quest.For context, that’s 2300km of racing in just over 3weeks through one of the most remote river systems on the planet. This only ever been completed before by a hero of mine @bartdezwart (and Alex de saint??)
There’s been a lot going into this behind the scenes, and a lot more training to come.
Thanks to @sicmaui @blackfish_paddles @apsunutrition for embracing this project and helping showcase unique sides to paddle sports.
We’re behind you Lincoln and can’t wait to follow your progress!
