With 600 paddlers standing on the same start line, the Paris Crossing is the single biggest race in the world. The once-a-year opportunity to paddle on the river Seine past iconic landmarks such as the Eiffel Tower and Notre-Dame Cathedral is just an amazing experience!
Despite the freezing temps (most paddlers wore full suits with beanies and gloves) it was a beautiful sunny Sunday in Paris, with blue skies and the stunning backdrop making this a truly incredible experience for everyone on the water.
Fanatic´s Arthur Arutkin finished 2nd at the Crossing and 1st at the Oxbow SUP Challenge – well done there. Also stunning performance from youn Tom Auber in 4th!
At the same time he was officially taken up into the Red Bull team – really happy for you Arthur!
