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.
