Photos and videos are starting to filter onto the web on youtube and facebook. I'll do a linked compilation soon. Jeff Rankinen is putting his 70 miler footage on the 'tube right now, part one can be found on his youtube channel
Everyone that I talked to post race seemed to agree that though the weather was hot, the water was perfect and the course the best it's been in years. Big thanks to Al Nichols and his crew for putting in long hours to clean up the river.
