GREENVILLE, S.C. (June 5, 2013) – Bomber Gear, manufacturer of premium, technical paddlesports apparel and sprayskirts, is sponsoring the Steep Creek Championship at the GoPro Mountain Games June 6-9, 2013 in Vail, Colo., on Homestake Creek. Adding a twist to the event, this year the kayaker with the best carnage in the men’s and women’s divisions will go home with a Bomb Dry Top and K-Bomb Spray Skirt from Bomber Gear. 


The GoPro Mountain Games is one of the premier outdoor sporting events in the world, and Vail, Colo., is the perfect location for outdoor enthusiasts in all sports. Paddlers can choose between Homestake Creek, Gore Creek, the Eagle River and the Colorado River all just a short distance from town. The Games includes four kayak events including the Steep Creek Championship, the Kayak Freestyle Competition, the 8-Ball Kayak Sprint and the Downriver Sprint, so paddlers can compete in all kayak disciplines.

“Bomber Gear is designed to keep paddlers dry in even the wettest conditions, making it the perfect partner for the Steep Creek Championship on Homestake Creek, which drops 480 feet per mile,” said Jessica Prescott, marketing manager for Bomber Gear. “Some of the best kayakers in the world will be competing in the race this year, and Bomber Gear is excited to support this challenging competition, including those paddlers who take a more exciting line through the rapids and win the “Best Carnage” award. The Mountain Games are a celebration of action sports and the mountain lifestyle, and Bomber Gear is proud to partner with the Games again this year.”

 Dedicated to keeping kayakers warm and dry in any conditions, Bomber Gear expanded its offerings this year to include drysuits, splash tops and pants, neoprene tops and bottoms, as well as layering pieces. Bomber Gear dealer, Alpine Quest, is having its grand opening in Vail the weekend of June 6-9. Visit the new store in Loinshead to ask about demoing some Bomber Gear product.
