Director Skip Armstrong and Tribe Rider have released two new videos showing the action from the Rio Gol Gol in Chile during Stage 1 of the Whitewater Grand Prix. The video above shows highlights from the whitewater enduro race and offers a look at the standings. The video below offers a behind-the-scenes view of the athletes in action.
One thing that you can see in both videos is that when a kayaker gets hurt or stuck, one or more of the 32 other competitors are there to help. Without a lot of funding, the athletes have chosen to station themselves along the course to provide assistance in case something goes wrong.
