The 2013 Boater-X Grand Prix will take place on Aug. 31 in Nyköping, Sweden. Nyköping is an hour south of Stockholm and the home of the Swedish Canoe Federation's junior academy. I guess you can name any event a Grand Prix, but maybe this one qualifies as the payout for a podium finish is not too shabby.
1st place: $3800 (25000sek) and a brand new Burn
2nd place: $1500 (10000sek) and a brand new Burn
3rd place: $1500 (10000sek)
So it would be possible for someone to fly to Stockholm from Denver, have a nice little vacation, kick ass at the competition and come out ahead financially.
Max will be in NOC for the freestyle worlds at the time of the Grand Prix so anyone adventurous enough could use his apartment in Nyköping for free.
