It's great to see the Gorefest is back and going strong - kudos to Lisa et al from Timberline for making it happen! For those old timers who have been doing the Gore Race scene forever, wondering thoughts on the best Gorefest ever? Check out this vid from 2002 event (as I recall) with Gore being featured on ESPN. My vote is for the year this was filmed and we had the jumbotron at the pumphouse, and mega kegs of NBB...and no cop raids or accidents and the railroad gestapo actually took our film crew and photogs in up the tracks. The next year after that was the Rancho nightmare and then the cop raid at Pumphouse followed after that.
Best of Gore carnage video to come (from like a decade of races) if I can find it in the archives and dust it off (convert from analog to digital). MAJOR crash and burn! PS..the ESPN editors flailed, that shot of Nelson winning is actually Aaron Pruzan from Rendevous in Jackson - what does ESPN know about kayaking anyway!
