Team Riot does well at the Iceman Championships
Team Riot members Chris Gragtmans, Spencer Cooke, and Joey Hall put in a good showing at the 2006 Millrace Massacre and Iceman Championship race
Held in Columbia, South Carolina, on the Saluda River, this race features 3 different categories.
The Millrace Massacre is a time trials for boats 8'6" and under, with several must-make eddies.
The top ten finishers in the Massacre then compete in a short boat head-to-head race which also features must-make moves.
The final race of the day is the Iceman Championship, which is a mass start downriver head-to-head race with no length limit that also involves paddling back upstream, running, and even swimming.
Congrats to the Riot boys on their finishes:

Spencer Cooke - 1st place - Museum quality replica Riot Glide prototype
