BV Pro Rodeo 09

I’m a little late, but thought I should say something about the BV Pro Rodeo.  This year the rodeo was the same weekend as paddlefest.  That meant lots of people, events, clinics through RMOC, good sales and a gear swap.  It’s a great kickoff to the season so check it next year.


Anyway, back to the competition.  I practiced for 5 days in Buena Vista before the prelims on Friday.  I was paddling decent but I didn’t feel ready to compete because I had just had 9 months off kayaking while I was attending school in Wisconsin.


In competition I hit mcnastys, loops, space godzillas, and a backloop.  They were good rides, but not quite good enough.  I placed 6th and just missing the cut for finals.  Being on the bubble is hard but especially because I was 6th last year to.  Hopefully next year...


These are the results as far as I remember.
