We’ll be bringing you a post looking back on this year from Mike soon! For now, take a look back at our most popular posts from this year:
Back in September we interviewed Austrian international slalom paddler Viki Wolffhardt. DBP staff writer Jay Carpenter caught up with her after she had won the U23 K1W European championships.
In October we carried a post from Mark Hirst about what safety equipment to carry. Good knowledge, as we all beater from time to time!
#3 – REMEMBERING JAMIE PAGE ~ The Greatest Gift is Love and Friendship.
We recently looked back at the loss of a good friend of DBP. Chicago Mike and Alex Wilson looked back at the memory of Jamie Page.
A hard hitting article from Laura Oakley looking at sexism in commercial whitewater.
The most read article of 2016 was the piece by Kelsey Gaffigan looking at the issues around race in paddlesports. An article that sparked controversy, but one that we feel raises issues that needed to be aired.
