FutaXL 2016 – Giant Slalom
In the final event of the FutaXL, a giant slalom course was set up through « Casa de Piedra. » The top 20 whitewater hustlers of the Futaleufú valley battled it out for eternal glory. It was a great race to conclude an event that will hopefully keep people coming back to enjoy and fight for the rivers of Patagonia.

Rivers like the Rio Futaleufú are constantly under threat of hydroelectric development and unless there are people willing to fight for these wild places, we will lose them forever.
