Head 2 Head

Rafting Head 2 Head Voss Active Mon 22.06 at 13:00 Get Tickets

CATEGORY: RAFTING COMPETITION

Concept

  • To battle! 2 boats, head 2 head knock out heats.
  • The course starts at Voss Active Klatrepark and finishes just below the rapid Laila.
  • Knock out system, until the final pair of teams reach the final.

Heats are decided by the results from the Giant Slalom result positions. The fastest team meets the slowest and so forth. The highest-ranked team chooses the start position in the eddy. The winning team of each round MUST get their raft and gear on the minibus and get back to the start line ASAP!

After we have had a morning briefing, we make our lunch, load up the buses and head up into the river.

A full training run will be done before the start of the competition.
