Dusi champ Lance Kime joins entry for Push And Pull Paddle
Paarl - With the majority of the limited number of entries in
the innovative Bamboo Warehouse Push And Pull Paddle canoe
marathon now accounted for, double Dusi winner Lance Kime has
added his name to the entry list for the three day paddling
event in the Western Cape winelands from 9 to 11 August.
The talented adventure racer, trail runner, mountain biker and
paddler is excited to be part of the race as he is building his
training base for an assault on the national K2 title at the
upcoming Hansa Fish Marathon in September, but sees the Push And
Pull Paddle as a ground-breaking canoeing event.
“It is the first time someone has had the energy and courage to
stage a canoeing race in a social format that has become so
popular in mountain biking and trail running, where all the
athletes and their families stay together in a race village,”
“The only event that comes close to this is the Fish because
everyone stays in Cradock, but they are spread out all over
town. At the Push And Pull Paddle we will all be staying in a
race village for the first time, which will be awesome,” he
“The best thing about canoeing is the people,” he went on to
say. “ So to be sharing a race village with the people that make
up the paddling community is something that I am really looking
Kime is now based in Stellenbosch working as an engineer and
also embarking on an adventure tourism venture with another
paddler Shaun Rubenstein. He says he is aware of how strong the
men’s field is shaping up to be for the race.
“Look I am getting back into my paddling now, so a top five
finish would be good for me,” he said.
Kime will line up alongside elite stars like Berg champion
Graeme Solomon, world champion Andy Birkett, Simon van Gysen,
Andrew Houston and a gaggle of young rising stars including
Bartho Visser, Mark Keeling, Anders Hart and Zach Preyser.
