07.18.2018, Ivrea - The most important event for the world of rafting is everyday closer: the World Rafting Championships for the categories Junior and U23, which will be held in Italy from 21 to 24 July 2018.

More than 35 teams, for a total of 15 participating countries, will compete on the rapids of the Dora Baltea River firstly in Villeneuve(Aosta) and then in the Canoe Stadium of Ivrea.

The WRF, after reaching a collaboration agreement with the International Canoe Federation (I.C.F), became an official ICF Associate Member and a landmark for rafting worldwide.

The international delegations will arrive in Italy on Friday 20 July. For the occasion, the Rafting Aventure Park in Villeneuve will turn into a village that will host the athletes throughout this important event. On Saturday, it will be possible to follow the official training in the river from 9 am to 12 pm and from 3 pm to 6 pm. On Sunday, athletes will finally confront each other in 3 different specialities: Downriver in Villeneuve (AO), RX and Slalom in Ivrea (TO).

 

At the end of the kermesse, the award ceremony will be held in the suggestive and unique Piazza d’Armi at Forte di Bord. It will be possible to follow the event live on the ICF official channels and on all the WRF social networks. Good luck to all the organizers and to the young athletes.

RX: a new race format

 

On the occasion of the World Championships, the WRF launched its TALENT IDENTIFICATION PROGRAMME (TIP), by involving some teams composed of athletes coming from different developing countries. Two of these teams will take part in the event.
