On Sunday, September 21st, Glenwood Springs hosted the first “Throw Down Show Down” freestyle kayaking event. According to the organizers, the event served “as a practice run for the upcoming 2009 Freestyle Kayaking U.S. Team Trials [to be held at the Glenwood whitewater park] which lead to the 2009 World Championships.” South Main Kayak Team’s Jed Selby reports that the hole was touchy but gave up plenty of big moves. In the end, Jed took 3rd behind Glenwood local Connor Flynn in 1st and Colorado ninja John Meyers in 2nd. Here are some pictures from the event.
