Big Wins at Tahoe’s Race the Lake of the Sky

Last weekend’s annual Race the Lake of the Sky in Lake Tahoe, Calif. is always a big event in the summer race season for elite and recreational paddlers alike. This year was no different, as Appleby returned to take her three-peat in as many years, while Danny Ching made his clean sweep of the weekend and Shae Foudy took home another big victory.

Hundreds—and we’re talking hundreds—of paddlers headed out to Lake Tahoe over the weekend for a couple days of racing and rubbing shoulders with top SUP athletes. Saturday’s five-miler saw over 300 paddlers compete on the short course, while Sunday’s 14-miler saw upwards of 150 competitors. In the short course, Thomas Maximus was first to cross the line on his unlimited, while Danny Ching took the elite win (14’ division) ahead of Javier Jimenez, Cyril Burguiere, and Jay Wild, who finished second through fourth, respectively. Appleby and Team USA’s Shae Foudy had a tight race on the women’s side, but Appleby came out on top with Foudy just behind in second, and Tahoe local Anik Wild finishing in third.

Sunday’s long distance race saw unlimited racer Rob Rojas cross the line ahead of Saturday’s unlimited short course winner, Thomas Maximus. But, in the elite division, Danny Ching continued his winning weekend with another victory, finishing ahead of Javier Jimenez, Cyril Burguiere, and Chance Fielder. Saturday’s second place female, Shae Foudy, raced to the win ahead of Kelsa Gabehart and Sarah Messina, while Appleby raced prone.
