The competitions will take place on the Noce river in Mezzana regarding the SPRINT, the SLALOM and the H2H. The DOWNRIVER will start in Ossana and finish in Caldes. Noce river is a continuous, technical, natural mountain river; it is 30 km long and the grade varies from 2 to 5, with many sections (run by the races) having a 3+, 4 grade. There are different terrain typologies the river runs through: Mezzana-Marilleva and Croviana – Malé section: open fields, other sections: steep sided terrain and forests. The flow of this river is nearly constant and its usual limits are normally about 20 to 30 cubic meters/sec. The water level depends on 2 hydroelectric basins. The subject responsible for the water level regulation and water release is the ENEL –hydroelectric plant of Cogolo, in Val di Peio, which guarantees for a constant water level for an event of such an importance.

Here is a map of the river with some useful details:
