Last 20th and 21st of March has taken place the FKT first round (France championship): 150 competitors gathered at Tournon Saint Martin white water stadium. The weather was good, very sunny and the water was perfect with retentive and powerfull hall very pleasant to ride. This first competition was the occasion for many mates to meet again after a long winter riding separately.
Friday night: After a few beers and many long chats, everybody went to bed to be ready and fit for the Saturday.
Saturday: Qualification in the afternoon and semi-final in the evening… by night! Everything would have been ok if I hadn’t finished 6th and missed the final so closely.
Sunday: Racing with an open canoe, I’ve managed to turn the table on as I’ve finished 2nd in the final. As an information regarding the mates of the club: Rodolphe has finished 4th in C1 and Arthur 2nd in K1 but also 1st in C1 junior.
