White Water Triple Crown
13 - 15 Jul 2020
Since July has such variability with water levels here, we need to keep some flexibility in our format. This year we aim to hold each event (slalom, downriver, and freestyle) only once. This will help decompress the busy schedule and should make everything more fun for everyone.
River running and playing our way down the river is the essence of whitewater paddling. This year we are adding an "Experimental" event- a Free Ride race that combines running the river, negotiating slalom gates and throwing in freestyle tricks all in one race.
Special thank you to photographers Steve Silk and Regina Nicolardi for sharing their talent and artwork. Their images capture the spectacle and excitement of whitewater paddling. Steve captured U.S. Olympian Casey Eichfeld after he succeeded in landing a front loop (front flip) in the freestyle competition in 2015. Regina took the photos of Danny Stock catching huge air and an unidentified racer passing the final challenging rapid in the Wildwater competition.
