VOTW: Canadian Men's Pair Builds for Bled
This week's video comes to us thanks to the the newest member of the Canadian LM4-, Rares Crisan, who has been featured on RR before (Will Crothers and Crisan teamed up to produce 'Luzern Cribs' not long ago), and who has the makings of a filmmaker. Dave Calder and Scott Frandsen are returning to Worlds this year in an effort to build toward London, again knowing that there are some well-established front runners to catch. Their first appearance of the summer a few weeks ago in Lucerne was certainly impressive, as they were right in the mix with the top two pairs from 2009 and 2010, but ultimately unable to pull off an early upset. The GB duo of Triggs-Hodge and Reed have their hands full with the Kiwis, but if they don't pay enough attention to their North American rivals, they may find that the silver medal comes dearer than expected.
Also, check out Crisan's preview of an upcoming travelogue video that features some very nice editing and candid shots of the Canadian Team as they prepare for international competition.
