Pine Creek Boatercross!

Fibark is off and running here in Salida. Thursday’s Pine Creek boatercross started off the week with a bang.  Boatercrosses are always fan favorites but the Pine Creek race mixes it up with a giant stickey hole thrown in the middle to keep things interesting.  Definitely the most exciting boatercross I have been a part off.

Team Pyranha had a strong showing again this year in the race.  The Karnali and the Burns were definitely the most popular boats out there.  Everyone started out with a time trial run to cut the field to 16 and seed you for the very important starting positions.  In the time trials Calhoun was Second Dave Fusilli was Third I was fourth and I think Jared Seiler was 6th.  Jeremy And Nicole had the crowd favorite time trial runs with some impressive hole surfs!

After the first two rounds and a little controversy the finals were set with 5 of us.  It was a close brutal battle from the beginning to the end.  Headed into the last move into the finish line I was in the lead with Calhoun and Brian Kirk just a few boat lenghts behind.  I caught a weird surge above the boof into the eddy at the finish line and was forced down low in the eddy allowing Kirk to sneak in for the win.

Final Results:

1st.   Brian Kirk

2nd.  Josh Bechtel

T3rd  Jared Seiler

T3rd  Geoff Calhoun

5th    Dave Fusilli
