Joe Morley


KNOWN FOR: Dominating technically challenging extreme races with smooth slalom style.

THIS YEAR: The Adidas Sickline in the idyllic mountain valley of Oetz, Austria, is one of the most competitive races in the world. Many of the world's top pros fail even to qualify for the event. After Sam Sutton won the race three times in a row, many paddlers began to wonder if another champion could ever dethrone the Kiwi on the Wellerbrucke rapids. Great Britain's Joe Morley rose to the challenge and won the event back to back in 2013 and 2014. It's safe to say that Joe is consistently one of the fastest whitewater paddlers on the planet.
