Go Pro Mountain Games Final Wrap Up
The Go Pro Games has ended as of last night. It was filled with a ton of amazing events kayaking and beyond. From Slacklining World Champs to Bouldering World Cups, to some serious kayaking action.
It started on Thursday with the Homestake Steep Creek Race. This year had the most spectators I have ever seen at the course and there wasn’t even parking available by the time the race was beginning. We had several Karmas on the race course with Dane, EJ, Ben Stookesberry, Chris Korbulic, Hunt Jennings, Nick and Courtney. They changed the format with the race this year with 2 qualifying runs instead of 1, followed by a single run in the end if you made the cut. The mens cut to 5, women to 3.

Two races also were held in Men’s 470, Finn, Laser, RS:X Women and 49er blue fleets. Racing was postponed in the Nacra 17 and 49er FX.

I have some good news. I was able to stay upright and finish first at the Wind River Race in Washington last weekend
It is about a 3.5 mile, 20 minute head-to-head boatercross sprint down class IV whitewater. My friend Susan was right on my stern coming down through the crux of the rapids in a section called Ram’s Horn, so it definitely kept me motivated to paddle hard. She got some point of view pics of me in my green boat (attached).
It was a cold, rainy day but the event organizers had warm chili and two kegs waiting for us at the finish line! Another great day on the water. Read the rest of this entry →
