Starting the season off on the right foot, last week was the 2013 New Year's Challenge, multi craft paddle sports race. Starting off in strong form Team Werner picked up where they left off in 2012 with a dominating performance, putting 4 racers in the Top 10. (Full Results here.) Congrats to Matt Parker for the win, great job Matt. Close behind was Blake Hanely, Art Aquino and Renick Woods in 7th for a stout top ten finish. The race scene in the Pac NW has gotten very competitive and you have to respect that many of these guys are coming off busy holiday schedule and the challenges of cold weather training, to put up these results so early is a statement in their talents. Again, great job guys and thank you for representing Werner so well. Be sure to check out the Werner Grand Prix race paddle now at your local shop or online so you are ready for the start of your race season.
