(above)A Great shot from Creeking.info of me on Gorilla during this years race. Thanks guys!
The 2010 Green River Race went off without a hitch! An amazing event, one that everyone can enjoy; paddlers and spectators alike. ( If you aren't aware of what it is check my previous posts which describe the event in greater detail http://www.charliesimmonsboating.blogspot.com/).
I got a 5min and 24 second time, (thats close to 350 vertical feet descended in just under a mile!) and though it didn't go as well as i had planned worked out pretty clean and definately fun! 1st place Finish goes out to Mike Dawson. cheers!

Here is a link to a great video from this years race, put together by Get Wet Productions; Featuring many different view points as well as rapids and paddlers.
And yet another video from "Mindless Conception" showcasing an entirely different perspective, and a very cool one at that.
Big Thanks to all of you whom help organize, promote, and follow through with such an AMAZING EVENT! As well as everyone that hiked in just to watch, cheer, and yes even enjoy the carnage.....it wouldn't be the same without all of you.
See you on the River
