Like Dave, I dont have a say since I didn't race but it never ceases to amaze me how much shit CO boaters talk but year after year, representatives of the southeast arrive and run FDs and win races while the locals can't defend their own turf.

I guess Daniel D was right with his synopsis of CO boaters after all......wait a second, I live here now

Please tell me it wasnt Kirk Eddlemon that won

adam you are grossly imcompetent! go dig yourself a hole climb in it and light yourself on fire.. Fun is all that mattered and the race was close to say the least...i didnt now WV and Tennessee were southeast...

and adam if that synopsis is some colorado boaters like your self are... than sure. Everybody that showed up, had a blast, which kicks ass.

anybody want some Fremont Canyon? the lower 5+ stretch below the 2nd bridge be here all week.

Gnarrows Race 2010 Photos

Can we run the race in the late afternoon next year? The light was AWFUL for on the water photos, however, I think quite a few turned out well.

There's 250 photos in the following link, if you want a full RAW or high res JPG version of any photo, send me the link to the photo you want to and I'll happily send them your way.

Duncan's photos all turned out well, so did JJ's/Cutch/Evan... I didn't even realize it was Dave Frank till I looked at the photos.

Precautionary statement: P the K's a$$ included.

Enjoy! Picasa Web Albums - Jeff - Gnarrows Race...

Thanks for posting those pics. It was a great race and a fun time. Definitely a weak showing on the locals part. Fewest number of racers we have had since I first started attending. Kevin is banned next year since after we changed the race time a few Denver paddlers weren't able to attend... and then he didn't show. Huge thanks for Christian Cook (the 2009 defending champ) for organizing a great event, with great style. Dave Frank, thanks for stepping up again and heading the safety crew (or being the safety crew). Adam, you live in wondervu and I have yet to see you on USB, or any first or second descent that I've been on in the last few years. You would be lapping that shit if you weren't such a... but you are because you live in Colorado, and that sucks because we need more strong paddlers instead of no-showing shit-talkers (which I believe was your point). Where are all the kids these days? JJ, Evan and I all have our own kids and are lucky to paddle every other weekend at best for most of the season! We are supposed to suck, unlike you unemployed, kayaking all the time, college kids. Next time I piton, flip and get run over in semi's, I hope to see someone from Colorado and under the age of 25 passing me, not old man Stafford.

Awesome event. Great time had by all. Even my daughter had an amazing day when she crushed it on Filter Plant that afternoon. Thanks to everyone that made it happen. See you next year.

A good summary of the CO "old guard" aka the dad club. It was great to see everyone out this weekend. It was less than great to see P the K in hot pants.

What seperates men from greatness is the will to do great things...

Loser's Heat Vid:

Adam, yes Kirk won.

Cutch, Kirk has a kid too. I can't believe the old man beat me after I took the lead from him in the finals. That said, we probably wouldn't have been in the finals if the young Colorado locals weren't on the middle kings or hadn't sold all their gear.

Everyone, that's probably the most fun I've ever had in a kayaking race. We may bring a similar style event to the east coast next year.
