Whitewater, distance and heat put Downriver competitors to the test

Vrbas has once again put competitors through their paces in the gruelling 14 kilometre downriver race at this year’s IRF European Rafting Championship. With a sailing start at Kamp Krupa, teams raced their way down the idyllic Bosnian and Herzegovina countryside pitting their tactics, strength and stamina to the test against fellow competitors.

The open men started racing at 09:00 and 53 minutes later the two Czech teams crossed the finish line followed closely by the Croatian men. Next up the youth men followed closely by the junior women crossing the line with the roars from Team Slovenia drowning out all other cheers!

Next up were the masters division – as the sun stepped up its intensity making racing ever more gruelling and exhausting. Czech masters men one and two took prime positions followed closely by Russia and Great Britain 2.

Junior men and open women sealed the competition with their endurance powering them over the line with Slovenia just beating Czech Republic in the junior men – a gruelling defeat for Team Czech who are here in force with nine teams and their support teams!
