Adventure racing fans looking to get their fix this summer will be able to tune into HDNet in a few weeks to catch Primal Quest Montana shown in it’s full high-definition glory. The race is set to begin airing on Saturday, August 8 at 10:30 AM ET and again at 2:30 PM ET, and will run for four consecutive weekends.
The four, half-hour long episodes will retell the story of last year’s Primal Quest, which took place in the beautiful Montana mountains. The 60 coed teams of four raced across a 500+ mile course that featured plenty of altitude, wicked white water, and crazy action from start to finish. The usual adventure racing disciplines are on display, with plenty of running, mountain biking, and kayaking of course, but these endurance athletes will also take on a river boarding course, a tough orienteering section, and a world-class rock climbing wall.
I’ve seen all the episodes already, and they are excellent. I haven’t seen them in HD however, so I’m looking forward to rewatching them on HDNet, who have some of the best picture quality around. The amazing footage, caught by a crack team of cameramen, is going to look amazing, and I know everyone on the PQ team is excited to have the race shown in the States in high-def for the first time.
Primal Quest Montana begins airing the week before Primal Quest Badlands, which is set to take place in South Dakota beginning on the 14th of August. The course this year is going to be longer and tougher than ever, with more than 600 miles of trail to cover. And watch for a BIG announcement coming in the next few days that will change up the leaderboard heading into Primal Quest. This year’s race is going to be the most competitive yet!
