In the Mens our very own Kiwi Mike Dawson took the win with a new course record of 4minutes and 10seconds! Just ahead of American Dane Jackson and Issac Levingston in 3rd.
I will admit it was a little bit hard being on the sideline, but I felt very inspired and walked away from it with some dreams to come back next year or again someday to get my redemption on the river and race myself!
Ashville and the Green area was a pleasure to visit. Everybody was super friendly and the community was definately one of the coolest that I have experience. So much energy and buzz! Thanks so much to all of the people I met and those that took me paddling, hiking and showed me good times in the South East. Esp. thanks to the following- Shane, Pat, Stephen, Issac, Mark Miller, Bo, Emily Grimes, Jeanie, Betsy, Clay, Fusilli, Erin, Scotty, Rebecca, Adrienne, Sarah and Chris and Cob!
