Columbia Gorge Paddle Challenge. Insider Coverage-Sunday.SUP - Aug 22, 2016
Columbia Gorge Paddle Challenge, "Insider Coverage" from Werner Paddles of Day 2 down wind action. Father-daughter-boyfriend steal the show?! Although Mother Nature was the true star of Day 2 action, serving up SICK winds to give true downwind racing to the world's best stand up paddle racers, the story line of MacRae Wylde taking 2nd in the Open division and his daughter and her boyfriend (Fiona Wylde + Bernd Roediger ) taking First and Second in the elite division may be... the coolest story line of the event. Strong finishes by other Team Werner athletes included top 20 by Josh Riccio in what he called potentially, "the most competitive downwinder the sport has seen," and 2nd in the "Grom" division by Tyler Bashor. Congrats to ALL of our team riders, thanks for your support and AMAZING job training, racing and smiling. Thanks to the folks from Naish Stand Up Paddling for hosting another great event and congrats to all the racers out there.
