Natalie Anderson WWGP stories

Hey, Natalie and I are back from the WWGP and we have started working through our photos and video from the trip. Natalie is writing a series of articles about the events in the WWGP, with a little more detail than the official videos had. Check out the first two on our blog at:

Leif and Natalie: WWGP Stage 1 - Gol Gol Enduro

Leif and Natalie: WWGP Stage 2: Puesco Boulder Dash

And keep checking back for more.

Also thanks to all the buzzards that donated money to help us travel to the Grand Prix.

Great write ups Natalie! Keep em coming!
I bet you're the only person to ever cite Science Daily on the Buzz! I was unaware of the didymo - thanks for the info.

Way to represent for Colorado!

Why no freestyle this year? Were there no massive features or was it more about class V?

About a year or so ago, they put the location up for a public vote, and the public voted for chile. Once that was set, yeah, not really any waves in chile, so just a race series. The 2013 wwgp will be back in quebec, with the freestyle/creek mix.

The logistics, travel, and high water must have made putting on the event in Chile a huge challenge. Strictly from a viewers perspective, I enjoyed following last year more. The down river freestyle venue was amazing.

I like the idea of different venues, they don't have to be logisitical nightmares. BC might be cool. Huge picturesque creek runs and playboating on the skook or one of the bigger water runs towards the interior. Or a high water idaho (top to bottom north fork marathon) then move to hood river for creeking would be plenty of action as well with some playboating possibilities. Not as large of waves as east canada but I think one or two playboating segments is enough to prove who is better all around.

I agree the downriver freestyle was sick. maybe down river huck/freestyle off celestial falls?
