|The historic city of La Seu d’Urgell, on the Catalan Pyrenees, has a tradition of over 40 years organizing whitewater canoe competition events. The Olympic games of Barcelona 1992 was a landmark on this support of canoe slalom.|
Later those memorable days, which permitted slalom to be accepted on the Olympic programme, several World Cup events and the Worlds Championships on 1988, 1999 and 2009 endorse the facilities on Parc Olímpic del Segre and the organizing team.|
The World Cup 2010, to be held from 25 to 27 June, is a new opportunity to give service to the slalom canoe family.
The challenge aims to improve technology on sport competitions, presence on media (especially TV), and worldwide promotion of canoe slalom through the participation over 25 national teams, and spread tourism in La Seu d’Urgell. The history on the old town, the mountain valley around Cadí-Moixeró Natural Park, and the local dedication to sport should be known.
In addition this occasion will keep active and financially healthy the Olympic facility of Parc del Segre.
The World Cup is possible thanks to the support of institutions and sponsorships. On behalf of the organizing Committee we thank their help.
We trust on the contribution of the participant teams and we are ready to work for a fair competition and a happy stay in our country.
On behalf of ICF, RFEP, FCP and the Organizing Committee, welcome to the World Cup 2010.
