Sickline Adidas World Championships Austria

Last weekend i went out to the Adidas extreme downriver race, organised by the boys at Sickline. It was held on the River Oetz in Austria which is a pretty hard river to race down. After three days of waiting around, the race never materialised as the water was too high on the section that they had set up on. In Austria you have to get a permit to hold such an event, due to the permit they could not move the event or just let us race down it for fun as they would have been in alot of trouble. We still managed to go and run some other rivers while we were there, so not a wasted trip. Hopefully it will run next year as they had put so much effort into the event!
