Slalom cross? What's this? :d 

 

the newest attempt of ICF canoe slalom part to survive the new Olympic agenda :d

 

The canoe slalom equivalent of snowboard cross or ski cross, The competition first starts with some time trial run qualification, the fastest athletes advance for the quarterfinals heats, the first 2 of each heat go to the semis, and so on..

Get it :d

 

Just now it´s not really funny, rather ridiculous and borring. Many nations even doesn´t look to be really interested and doesn´t field any athlete for example, but yeah, the day when it will be added to the olympics, these nations will quickly start to take it suddenly more seriously :whistle:

I watched it actually, and I agree, it is boring to everyone that likes the classical slalom canoeing format...

 

Same as ski and snowboard cross. Overtaking after the start is next to impossible. :facepalm:
