This is one of the most well known artificial whitewater channels in France and has a proud history however an upgrade was needed in order for it to function as a high level competiton and training venue.
Thanks to a combination of RapidBloc areas and fixed rocks it as been possible to increase the depth of the course throughout and consequently make it wider. Whitewater features have been formed all along the course and create a real international whitewater course.
The use of RapidBlocs facilitated the adjustment of the water level and allowed a fine tuning of the features which made it stable, secured and fun.All users from the local club and the French team are unanimous to say that it is like a new course which could easily welcome a U23 International Championship !
