Segre Cup
La Seu d'Urgell - Ponts

15 - 16 April 2022

Segre Cup is an International Canoe Slalom competition held between two venues: Parc Olímpic del Segre in La Seu d'Urgell and Parc de la Roca del Call in Ponts. Both of them in Spain.

Two days of competition in two different venues.

The competition format is one heat run for everybody and one final run for the 10 top ranked athletes on heats.

The age group is Junior and Senior.

Parc Olímpic del Segre

The Parc Olímpic del Segre is constructed in a branch of the river Segre, which was re-channeled 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: 10 m3/s

•Course features: concrete bottom, banks and obstacles of natural boulders

•Spectators’ capacity: 5.000 people

 

The Competition Course is accompanied by a beginner’s 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.

 

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.
