[RESULTS] GoPro Mountain Games Give Us A Preview Of What To Expect In Idaho

GoPro Mountain Games SUP Cross

Looks like a bunch of all-star paddlers were in Vail, Colorado on the weekend for the GoPro Mountain Games. The event featured a couple of interesting SUP races: the downriver sprint and the SUP cross, both of which gave us a glimpse of what’s in store at the big Payette River Games next week.

Spencer Lacy and Haley Mills took out the destruction derby that was the SUP Cross, while Gillian Gibree was the quickest in the women’s sprints.

Over in the men’s sprints Kai Lenny showed he’s one of those annoyingly “good-at-freakin-everything” kind of athletes, taking out the downriver sprint ahead of Mike Tavares. After reading Kai’s summary of the event, it seems the wunderkind is pretty stoked with this kind of SUP racing format.

Though actually it sounds like Dan Gavere had the fastest time in the sprints but was DQ’d on a technicality, so look out for him at Payette River Games next week.

Along with Dan, we’ll also be seeing Kai, Mike, Haley, Gillian and plenty of other athletes from the Mountain Games jump back in the river in Idaho next week. They’ll join the likes of Travis Grant, Jamie Mitchell and Candice Appleby to battle it out for the record $50,000 prize purse.

But back to Vail: Full results are below while SUP the Mag has a good video recap of the action:
