This is what it looks like at the moment, you can find more on youtube, ICF film a most of their events.
For the world cups which are happening just now, check the live results on Sunday and you will find a video link, which will be live on Sunday.
BC chose to ignore the event for this year (so you won't see any British competitors) - to be honest the announcement came pretty close to the selection dates for the GB slalom and wildwater teams so there wasn't really much time to come up with a slection policy.
However; in the last few days the BC International Panel have released the draft slalom selection policy for 2018, the bit of interest is on page 5:
The all important link to give that feedbackBC Canoe Slalom Junior U23 Senior Team Selection Policy wrote:Extreme Canoe Slalom:
For fair and transparent selection to Extreme Canoe Slalom events at World Cup and World Championships, the International Panel wish to hear your thoughts on how best to structure a selection policy that will enable the objective selection of a 2018 team.
The panel welcomes ideas from all parts of the paddling community for inclusion in this policy or as a stand alone British Canoeing policy.
Closing date is midday 11th October 2017.
If you want to read the entire slalom policy (it is pretty baffling!) you can find it here
I would strongly urge anyone with an interest in BoaterX to respond to the consultation (looks like you can do it without answering questions about the slalom part of it), whether you have a good idea for how to select a future GB BoaterX team, or just want to tell BC to keep their hands off it.
Note that there is no lottery based funding available for non-olympic disciplines so any paddlers selected would have to fund themselves for training and to get to the events
It would also be good if people could make a list of existing BoaterX events both in the UK and abroad to show BC that they don't need to reinvent the wheel.
The ones I can think of are:
- Hurley Classic (European Open this year)
- Garry BoaterX
- Grandtully BoaterX
- Washburn Paddlefest BoaterX
