EkstremsportVeko 2017 – Head 2 Head Strandaelva Report + Results + Gallery

The final event of the 2017 EkstremsportVeko went down today in a very cheerful atmosphere. All the athletes, tired from the last 3 consecutive days of racing and partying hard, were both relaxed, hangover and focused on enjoying as much as possible the last ride&party day.

The Head to Head was held on the Wilderness Camp Rapid of the Strandaelva river, just below the Money drop, that a few paddlers ran just before the race as a warm up!

Just two gates were put in strategical zone to force the paddlers to make spectacular moves:  boofing an eddy and create chaos on the second one, where a few athletes took paddles right in their faces. At the end of the day, we could count a broken nose and some bruised faces, but everyone was stoked and the friendly ambiance will continue till tonight last huge party.
