Close to 3000 people registered for the pole pedal paddle race this year. Last year a record 3200 athletes came out for the PPP. Molly Cogswell-Kelly, Events Director for the Mount Bachelor Sports Education Foundation, says the money raised is going to a good cause: "So we raise money for our youth athletes that are in our program that get the highest level training at Mount Bachelor, in alpine racing and Nordic skiing, and free ride snow board and free ride ski and then cycling." According to Kelly, three members of the U.S. Ski Team have been training with the Mount Bachelor Sports Education Foundation since they were seven years old. Kris Freeman has made a name for himself as an elite Nordic skier with the U.S. Nordic Ski Team, but this week, he showed off his versatility as he won the 36th Pole Pedal Paddle. Last year's winner, Andrew Boone came in second and Stephanie Howe took home the title for Elite Women Athletes for the third time.
