Another Big Race Up At Tahoe…

Tahoe Cup Donner Lake race

No matter how many times I post about a race in Lake Tahoe that attracted hundreds of competitors, I’m always surprised to see just how many paddlers this region supports. Maybe because it’s miles from the ocean, maybe because it’s way up in the sky, maybe because you’ve probably never heard of the place unless you live in the States (or really love skiing). I’m not really sure why, but for some bizarre reason I’m always surprised. In a good way. Because no matter how you look at it, Lake Tahoe truly is a paddling mecca…

The Lake showed its true colours again on the weekend, when over 150 paddlers hit Donner Lake (technically not Lake Tahoe, but close enough) for the unofficial season opener, the O’Neill Tahoe Cup Donner Lake race. On a perfect day for paddling – warm weather, sunny skies and a windless, glassy lake – racers hit the water at 9am for the start of the 5 miler (8 kms).

Just under 40 minutes later, Rob Rojas crossed the line on his unlimited to claim line honours. A few minutes later Brennan Rose made it a double win for the Riviera boys, taking out the 14′ class ahead of local Jay Wild. Jay’s wife almost went one spot better in the women’s, though eventually settled for the runner-up spot as well, just 4 seconds behind the winner Jen Fuller.

Also great to see 20 juniors in the race – click the “Age” column on the results below and you’ll see that the age of competitors went all the way down to 6-years-old.

Anyway there’s a full recap over on the official site. Sounds like it was a great day and a great race. Nice way to start the Tahoe summer season…
