Whitewater canoeing is the sport of paddling a canoe on a moving body of water, typically a whitewater river. Whitewater canoeing can range from simple, carefree gently moving water, to demanding, dangerous whitewater. River rapids are graded like ski runs according to the difficulty, danger or severity of the rapid. Whitewater grades (or classes) range from I or 1 (the easiest) to VI or 6 (the most difficult/dangerous). Grade/Class I can be described as slightly moving water with ripples. Grade/Class VI can be described as severe or almost unrunnable whitewater, such as Niagara Falls.
At the request of the Ivrea Canoe and Kayak Club, Hydrostadium accepted an expertise mission in the beginning of 2007. The aim of this expertise was the optimization of the last third of the course with a view to the organization of the World Cup Sprinting in June 2007.
The re-modeling of the end of the course makes it much more attractive. Moreover, the water level is higher and the final threshold with drop safer. ( Source: www.hydrostadium.com
