Outdoor Channel’s ‘The Brigade’ Faces Struggles as Depleted Team Trudges on Despite More Challenges on Mondays at 8 p.m.

OSG Logo New

DENVER (May 10, 2019) – With injuries mounting and time becoming more and more an issue for the group, the brigade looks for ways to cut down on time spent arguing while maximizing their energy towards arriving in Hudson Bay in The Brigade: Race to the Hudson presented by Bass Pro Shops and Cabela’s on Mondays at 8 p.m. on Outdoor Channel.

Last week, the team confronted Traci about her injury and the pace that was necessary to ensure their success in reaching York Factory. She decided to self-eliminate, after voicing her own feelings of discontent with the treatment at the hands of the group. With Traci’s departure, the brigade faces many more miles to try and complete its mission before time runs out. Although the brigade is one less paddler, the remaining crew is determined to push eastward towards Hudson Bay with a renewed vigor.

This week, the team pushes themselves through exhaustion and pain from carrying their heavy packs. Upcoming white water poses a dangerous threat for some of the less experienced white-water paddlers on the team and slow deliberation about group movements is costing them time they can’t afford to lose. Will they let the trail beat them or will they power through as one unit? Find out in this week’s episode of The Brigade: Race to the Hudson presented by Bass Pro Shops and Cabela’s on Outdoor Channel.
