GoPro Mountain Games 2013

GoPro Mountain GamesAs always, the GoPro Mountain Games (formerly the Teva Mountain Games), starts off with a bang at Homestake Creek in Colorado. We are about 30 minutes outside of Vail in a town called Red Cliff and theres a roadside section of river that drops 450 feet per mile. Its an amazing stretch of whitewater and this year it actually had some water in it! My runs didn’t go as well as I had hoped and I ended up in 3rd place behind Martina Wegman and Natalie Anderson.
