Justin Beckwith of Holland Patent, NY paddled a Wavehopper to his second consecutive Bottom Moose Extreme Race victory-besting his nearest competition by a margin of nearly a minute.
Beckwith finished the five-mile stretch of river with eight class 4-5 drops in a time of 31:35-well ahead of Eric Freeburg’s 2nd place time of 32:28. Freeburg competed in a long touring boat with the hatches duct-taped shut. Ryan Casey finished first in the cruiser class and third overall with a time of 35:26 while paddling a Dancer. Mike Burns followed closely behind at 35:34 in a Wavehopper.
