2016 Portland Rose City SUP Classic

Great race in Portland… Heavy hitters showed up and set a blistering pace.  I was in the top 4 for the first mile, got dropped, got caught by Thor, drafted him as he bridged back up to the lead three guys.  I hung on for dear life as Thor, Mike Darbyshire, Jarkko Simonen and Spencer Slaven rounded the north end of Ross Island.  With about one mile to go, I came off again and finished about one minute back, but almost 3 minutes ahead of the chase group.  The Starboard Allstar did everything it could for me… starting to love this board more and more…
