Outdoortrophy 2008

Last weekend I had the pleasure to make a kind of guest appearance at the kayak endurance race of the outdoortrophy in lingenau (vorarlberg, austria). The kayak stretch is about 6km long and the fastest pro paddlers do it in around 31-32 Minutes. I needed 35,19 min and considering the fact that I didn´t have the time this year to paddle any distance training sessions this year I`m relly happy about the time and I´m highly motivated to cut the time by some minutes next year. Our amateur team "DJ´s Bikeshop" consited of the following athletes: Thomas Summer (mountain running, AUT), Reinhard Höfle (paragliding, AUT), Markus Laeppaenen (kayaking, GER) and Daniel Flatz (mountain biking, AUT). The different sports have to be done according to the appearance mentioned above. Check out the results and more info about the amazing and challenging event here: http://www.outdoortrophy.com/home-engl.htm

Last but not least the event had an amazing closing party. Cu at the race and party again next year!

Right after the start there is a small weir

In mid way and at the end you got a few slalom gates to master (up- and down-river)
