Scary

Post by davebrads »

I've just seen this picture on FacebookImage
The description says it is of the Czech Cup slalom course, but I don't see any gates so I'm not sure what it is. I don't think I would fancy it in a C2, I'm not sure I'd give it a go in a plastic boat!
it's not a playboat, it's a river runner

I'm pretty sure that's Spindleruv Mlyn where there are WWR and slalom competitions.

Pretty sure it is Spindle.
Dennis had some epic stories about the wwr there in the late 70s when they sent down a far bigger release than they were meant to for the race.

Now we are talking, forget the flat Prem courses for the super anaerobic boys and girls, lets get some grunt into the top level of slalom, then you can hang out, and be cool, with us river peeps! :-)

We raced junior worlds there in 1996. A great course, no flat at all front start to finish. Great final rapid which we named 4 weddings and a funeral
