Spanish stranglehold under threat.
Espe Barreras has continued her near-flawless season in Europe by claiming round eight of the Euro Tour in the leafy & landlocked German city of Nordhausen as Jacko's famous Super Lap™ made a triumphant return as one of the best race formats in the sport.
Anna Tschirky, Kaelan Lockhart win the ICE Race in Switzerland and remind us there are actually some race boards without Starboard or NSP stickers
Aussie-turned-Belgian Kaelan Lockhart and the Swiss Miss Anna Tschirky have taken out the 2023 ICE Race in Thun, Switzerland, a well-known event on the early-summer calendar that drew over 150 paddlers to the line this time.
It's not even summer yet, but the temperature in southern Spain pushed past 30°C for this weekend's Sevilla SUP Festival aka week 2 of the Euro Tour. With the course set at 12km, the water set at dead flat and the sky as blue as a berry, it was always going to be a tough one. And making his season debut in similarly hot fashion was Noic Garioud.
Ludovic Teulade has won the GlaGla race for a second time, out-sprinting Germany's Norm Weber to repeat his 2019 success while young Dutchman Donato Freens was very impressive in third. Kaelan Lockhart from Australia looked strong all race but settled for fourth place just ahead of Denmark's Christian "Polar Bear" Andersen.
