The Lea

The Lea Race is held in October each year on the Lea near cradle mountain, an awesome III/IV creek. The run is made up of 3-4 decent sized drops all of which are amazingly clean. Nick and I ran the river several times leading up to the where I took some picys.

First drop on the Lea.  This was two days before the race at a medium level.imgp0085.jpgimgp0086.jpgimgp0087.jpgimgp0088.jpgNick on the first drop.imgp0090.jpgimgp0091.jpgimgp0092.jpgimgp0093.jpgNick showing how not to boof.

We ended up 12th out of 25 teams. A race run down the course takes roughly 12 minutes. A great weekend, highly recommended.
