2013 was a great year for us! Paddled some fine rivers, saw a lot of beautiful places and met a few interesting people.
As we look back to the past year... paddling the 'Dora Baltea' in Italy with large floods maybe was our highlight of this year, a shame we didn't get any footage, it was INCREDIBLE!
Paddling rio Forcos maybe wasn't such a challenge because of the low flows (due to the late snowmelt) but what a beautiful experience it was. Definitively going back there when the water levels are higher.
For C2 in Goumois (our selection races), we paddled more technical and aggressive than last years race. Even with a high water level we managed to paddle better results.
That we couldn't start at the ICF world ranking race in Ivrea (Italy) was a little bit of a bummer. We were really motivated to compete there, but because of mechanical problems plans got changed.
We are happy to see that we are progressing really fast lately. Last two competitions were really fast and it feels good to see this progression. Keeps us motivated for next year!
This are only a few stories of the past year... too many to mention. We did edit a '2013 Reel' recapitulating our year in 4 minutes! Make sure you watch it here (HD) or just here...
Summarizing 2013 we had an epic year with lot's of whitewater and good progression in C2! Our plans for next year: just going BIGGER and BETTER! Already a few destinations selected where we want to go in 2014, more details will follow...
We will keep you up to date and we wish you a great 2014 with lot's of whitewater!!!
