Each year we listen to feedback from our racers and make small changes and updates along the way to improve the overall experience and to keep the event interesting for everyone involved. Changes to the course and our logistics for 2018 lead to a smooth and fun year for racers and crew alike. This year saw our returning champs Geoff Kabush and Katerina Nash take the wins again and EWS racer Francois Bailly-Maitre take the second step in Pro Men’s before going on to take the 11th place finish at the La Thuile EWS stop the very next weekend.
