The traveling carnival that is freestyle kayaking pulled into Vail, Colo., over the weekend for the 10th annual Teva Mountain Games. Emily Jackson—no surprise here—captured her seventh-straight TMG kayak freestyle title, while the other Jacksons—Emily’s dad, Eric, and brother, Dane—settled for second and third place in the men’s finals on Saturday behind Colorado paddler Dustin Urban (a Jackson-brand paddler, after all), who earned his fifth overall kayak freestyle at the Mountain Games.
A post-finals interview with Urban and video highlight reel from some of the top guns follows:
