Looks like it has been raining a bit down in Chile - Stage 1 on the Rio Gol Gol ought to be pretty epic. We'll be updating the blog as information comes our way.

Thank you for the update.


Regular updates, including professional video and photography, will be available throughout the event on Facebook and at www.whitewatergrandprix.com.

Where are the pro videos and photography?

Looks like they got a business loan as suggested to fund the WWGP, from the WWGP website:

"Thanks to everyone that has helped get the word out about our fundraiser and especially to those that are stepping up to help support the Event.

The good news is that we have secured a loan that will pay our base costs for the event. While obviously a risky/stressful proposition, it is awesome that we are able to make this thing happen regardless of having no corporate sponsorship.

To any companies out there, we aim to make this Chile WWGP act as another sponsorship pitch for next Spring’s WWGP back in Quebec. Anyone currently putting together their 2013 budgets and considering what marketing projects / initiatives to support – we feel we have a strong product and would be stoked to hear from you to discuss possible partnerships.

So far we've had some success with our fundraiser ( Save the WWGP ), and we hope some of the other people that end up enjoying the event content might consider pitching 10$ towards the cause.

Thanks to everyone helping to make this happen !
Patrick"

They mentioned connectivity issues, so I suspect that the media will be up as soon as they can get it through the weak connection.

Where can I find the results for the woman's division?

"All 7 of the women rocked the course, despite a couple swims at the finish line (same course as the men), with Martina Wegman (NLD) taking the win and beating a solid number of men."

That's all I can find... weak!

It's impressive that all the guys are within a minute of each other and the slowest girl was only 2:02 behind Mike. The photo of the girls on Facebook looks like Nichole took a good shot to the eye. Good to see two of the 7 girls with strong CO connections.
