Presentation

 The historic city of La Seu d’Urgell, on the Catalan Pyrenees, has a tradition of over 40 years organizing white water canoe competition events. The Olympic games of Barcelona 1992 was a landmark on this support of canoe slalom.

Later those memorable days that permitted slalom to be accepted on the Olympic programme, seventeen World Cup events and the World Championships 1999 and 2009 endorse the facilities on Parc Olímpic del Segre and the organizing team.

The 2018 Canoe Slalom World Cup, is going to be held from 3rd to 9th of September, is a new opportunity to give service to the slalom canoe family.

La Seu d'Urgell

The challenge aims to improve technology on sport competitions, presence on media (especially TV), and worldwide promotion of canoe slalom through the participation over 50 national teams, and attract 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 Park 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 2018 Canoe Slalom World Cup.

 

Parc Olímpic del Segre   -   La Seu d'Urgell    -    The canal

Parc Olímpic del Segre

The Parc Olímpic del Segre is constructed in a branch of the river Segre, which was re-channelled after the damage caused by the exceptional flood of 1982. The slalom course’s specific features are as follows:

  • Length: 300 m
  • Drop: 6,5 m
  • Flow: 12 m3/s
  • Course features: concrete bottom, banks and obstacles of natural boulders
  • Spectators capacity: 5.000 people

The Competition Course is accompanied by a beginners course which is 130 m long with a drop of 1,5 m. The designed flow ranges from 3 to 10 m3/s.

The design of the artificial canals includes a system of complementary canals and mechanical conveyor belts which enable canoeists to return to their starting point without having to leave their boats. The dynamic conception of the whole facilities leads to intensive use all year round and separation of canoeists according to their levels of skill and ability. In order to make the sports and recreation function fit the variable flow of the river, a reversible electric power station has been designed. The power station has a 1200 KW capacity distributed in 4 turbine-pumps. In turbine mode, electric power can be reduced via hydraulic surplus to a flow of 17,5 m3/s. The power carried to the electricity network rises up to 4 million kW/h per year. In pumping mode, a water flow of up to 12 m3/s can be added to the hydraulic circuit, which is sufficient to guarantee the operation of the sports courses at any time of the year and in all dry weather circumstances. The Parc Olímpic del Segre building is L-shaped. The larger wing will house the changing rooms, showers, toilets, gym and a room for drying sport clothing. Upstairs, there is a large terrace and a snack bar-restaurant. The smaller wing provides storage, office space for coaches and management staff and a room used for doping control.

The total constructed surface area is 1700 m2.
The drop in the Slalom course is created naturally via channels that branch from the river Segre, with a very gentle slope. The feeder canal, 165 in length, and mainly the flat water canal, 650 m in length and 20 m in width, are set aside for training in flat water canoeing and the necessary practice that sport lovers require in waters with a steady current.

Around the perimeter, a roll-ski circuit has been built with a platform width of 5 m. Three of these are asphalted and trees have been planted in the other two. The circuit which winds through a shaded area bordering the canals to a length of roughly 1.850 m, will also be set aside for jogging or simply walking.

The sports amenities are completed with landscaped garden areas surrounding the flat water and wild water courses, occupying 7 hectares altogether, which serve as a city park for La Seu d’Urgell, right at the foot the town’s attractive historical centre.
