Connor Baxter just edges ahead of Kai Lenny to win sprint
Connor Baxter (Starboard) and Kai Lenny (Naish) have another battle of the ages today at Stop 6 of the Stand Up World Series with Connor Baxter just getting the edge in the sprint across the finish line making for a showdown of epic proportions.
Kai Lenny bolted off the start line and led for the entire race, but Connor had left reserve in the tank and powered the last leg of the course to hit the sand at the same time as Kai, and despite almost stumbling, powered his way over the finish line to take the victory in the sprint racing component of the Chicago World Series.
