I did the FIBARK DR race in 95 in an open tandem canoe (we only swam once in some rapid that didn't exist during lesser flows). We had to hug he deck to get under the Cotopaxi Bridge. It looked bigger than we've seen in a while in the old film, but not as big as '95.

Pretty cool stuff whether they where rednecks or the late 1940s versions of Front Range yuppies.

Looking at the description on youtube this was an international contest. The guy that finished it, and gets the hottie in white, came from Switzerland.

There is no way that row boat could have made it through the Royal gorge at 4000. This past year, i got tossed around in the gorge pretty good, albeit in my play boat around 4K but I sure as hell wasn't in a row boat. I bet that few went into the gorge in that race.

Sweet vid!
