CANOE-KAYAK Preview: Fox puts perfect record on the line in Slalom World Cup

After a break of almost two months, the fourth ICF Slalom World Cup is getting ready in Tacen (SLO), with Australia’s Jessica Fox trying to sweep both the C-1 and K-1 events once again for the fourth straight time!

No one had won both in a single World Cup since Fox had done it at Tacen back in 2013. But she took care of business at the first three World Cups and now faces – once again – 2017 World C-1 champ Mallory Franklin (GBR), Czech Worlds C-1 silver medalist Tereza Fiserova, K-1 Worlds bronze medalist Ricarda Funk (GER) and more.

While Fox has swept the World Cup women’s races, the men’s have been more competitive:

∙ Liptovsky Mikulkas: C-1: Sideris Tasiadis (GER) K-1: Sebastian Schubert (GER)
∙ Krakow: C-1: David Florence (GBR) K-1: Joe Clarke (GBR)
∙ Augsburg: C-1: Tasiadis K-1: Peter Kauzer (SLO)

Kauzer will be competing on his home course, which he says he has been riding on for at least 23 years!

The World Cup Final will follow next week from 7-9 September in La Seu d’Urgell (ESP). Look for results from Tacen here.
