Smalls Falls Race (Small To The Wall)
The level was low/runnable, and 24 competitors paddled as fast as they could over 5 waterfalls. Check out this quick edit of the drops, in the order they were run. It is just a teaser video to remind everyone that Eric Adsit (publisher of The Dirtbag's Guide to Whitewater) is working on a full edit from video shot by many people at the event.
Smalls Falls is in Western Maine. Here is a link to the American Whitewater description http://www.americanwhitewater.org/content/River/detail/id/4326/
The race started on a ramp on the top drop. Competitors raced through Slideways, Down n' Out, Biggie Smalls, and the last drops to an orange buoy in the pool above the bridge (which was lined with spectators).
