The Teva Mountain Games in Italy has just wrapped up for 2005. By all accounts the event was a huge success even with tricky water levels. Per Christian and Lars Georg teamed up with fellow LL paddler Benjamin Hjort to race as the Norwegian team and take 6th in the National event and Per managed to go one further by battling his way to 2nd in the boater cross.
