The 2014 GoPro Mountain Games
The GoPro Mountain Games are the country’s largest celebration of adventure sports, art and music, and they return to Vail, Colo. June 5 – 8, 2014.
Professional and amateur athletes from around the world converge upon the mountains and rivers of Vail to compete in nine sports and 25 disciplines for more than $110,000 in prize money.
Summer 2014 sporting events include steep, freestyle, sprint and full contact kayaking, rafting, mountain, road, and slopestyle biking, World Cup Bouldering, amateur climbing, fly fishing, standup paddling, slackline and trail, mud and long distance running……wow, that was a mouthful. Oh yeah, we hope you like the multiple free concerts, adventure flix, eye candy and Gear Town!
The 2013 GoPro Mountain Games drew large audiences for both the three-mile Sprint Race and the slalom SUP Cross event. Big names in whitewater SUP always turnout for the Games and last year saw pros like Dan Gavere, Haley Mills, Eric Jackson, and Nikki Gregg demonstrating their river skills and taking home top places. This year we expect to see an even greater competitive field.
