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:
