Meet Brand Ambassador Josh Taylor

Josh Taylor_brand ambassador_vitalyteI have been competing in Marathon Canoe Racing since 2004. Michigan has one of the toughest canoe racing circuits in the World. I gravitated towards the sport because the toughest canoe race in North America is in my home town of Grayling, Mi. The AuSable River Canoe Marathon. It is a 120 mile non stop race through the night with a cut off time of 19 hours. I have competed in the race 8 times. And with the exception of my first year where I finished 19th out of 65. I have been top ten or top 5 every year. My best finish was 4th place. I have competed in New York (General Clinton canoe regatta) and have finished top ten there as well. I am a husband, a father and while training for the sport I love I work 50-70 hours a week for Canadian National Railroad as a conductor. I love to compete. Whether it's playing board games with my family or grinding down a river for 120 miles I thrive on competition.
