This weekend’s Teva Mountain Games in Vail started as a local Memorial Day whitewater festival more than 15 years ago. These days it’s morphed into one of the largest multi-sport bonanzas in the country. Despite the addition of extreme fly fishing and dog jumping competitions, the river is still at the heart of the games. Here are the paddling events, people, and potential carnage to look out for.
Outdoor athletes of all types—trail runners, kayakers, rock climbers, mountain bikers and more—will compete at the Teva Mountain Games in Vail, Colorado, on June 3-6. Come to watch the competition or sign up for an event yourself. Here's how. *Check out our awesome wrap-up gallery from the event: http://www.skinet.com/skiing/competition/2010/06/teva-mountain-games-2010
