Trip Archive

Report from the BAON extreme race, which took place in the Caucasus from June 23-25 2005.

Article by Konstantin "Doctor" Vasin

This year the event was organized on the Chegem river (Northern Caucasus ). The race was sponsored by BAON company and also by the Men's Health magazine and Red Bull.

30 participants, including the Red Bull athelete Tao Berman and the Liquid Logic team members John Grace, Fred Coriell, Tanya Faux and Nikki Kelly, who came to Russia supported by The Northface, entered the race.

The non-Russian atheletes dominated in the qualification. However in the kayak-cross with head-to -head start of 4, a serious struggle started from the 1/8 final. In the final run Tao Berman, John Grace, Konstantin Vasin (Doctor) and Dmitry Danilov (Mit... сам переk 4; 086;ди) were competing for the main $1000 prize. Tao demonstrated some excellent acceleration and left the pursuit behind right from the start. The fight for the 2nd and 3rd places was vicious. Doctor and Mitiay were lucky enough to flip John right on the start, so he was the last. Despite John's being faster than Mitiay in the qualification, he could not catch up with him because Doctor was always in his way... The final results are:

1. Tao Berman (Red Bull)
2. Dmitry Danilov (ABV)
3. John Grace (Liquid Logic)
4. Konstantin Vasin (ABV)

The results of the extreme run were:
