Colorado Locals do the WWGP

As I'm sure a lot of you are aware, Leif and Natalie are currently in Canada competing/assisting in the White Water Grand Prix. Leif has been proving he belongs in the competition, while everyone who knows Natalie's paddling ability is perplexed as to why she isn't allowed to compete.

They have been keeping up with documenting their experiences, check it out at their blog.

Looks like leif is 12th in the overall points right now. That's incredible. There's some big names behind him. Hopefully he scores some big points in the next few rounds.

Natalie is such a rad paddler. A top 10 female world class paddler for sure.

It would of been nice to see her compete. I guess they are having trouble getting everyones time down with all the men 27 and only 7 woman.

They should have considered her more, though I'm not quite understanding how the eliminations work. It seems they should cap the mens bracket at 24 and bump the womans bracket to 8 competitors.

Anyhow, I'm stoked for them both, they have done so much for our local community, and everywhere they travel. I wish them luck and big lines!!!!
