On July 21, 2018 the Rafting World Championships in the Junior and U23 categories.

The Junior&U23 R4 World Championships will take place in Chavonne (Aosta) and Ivrea, a Piemontese town famous for its traditional orange feast and known also by itsriver Dora Baltea, which crosses along the city and which will be the watercourse where the world event will happen.

The event will run from July 21 to 24: the official competition will start on Sunday with the Downriver (in the Chavvone-Sarre section) in Valle dAosta and then from Monday moves to Ivrea for the Slalom and the RX.

This event runs straight after the ICF Canoe Slalom U23 and Junior World Championships: Ivrea will be remembered as host town for this World Event and also for being the host place five days before the Rafting races start off, of the U23 and Junior Slalom Canoe competition.

 

Italy is well prepared to make the participants feel at home. All the organizations efforts are focused on the 12 participating countries with their 35 teams in all, to make them and all the people attending the competition, take with them the best of memories of the event, of the town and its host team, as it will be on of the first big events.

The award ceremony will be held in the famous Forte di Bard, a fortified complex built in the 19th century by the House of Savoy on a rocky prominence above Bard.

The championship will be widely broadcasted by WRF and Planet Canoe, the official platform of the ICF. This will be an opportunity to show the world how this sport works, and certainly to engage the audience with the beauty of unforgettable landscapes.

You can get further information in Bulletin 1 and Bulletin 2.
