Each year in October the world’s best whitewater kayakers meet in Austria’s Ötztal for a special kind of challenge: adidas Sickline Extreme Kayak World Championship. At the famous Wellerbrücke, the Ötz river holds one of the most sophisticated whitewater sections on earth, thus the perfect setting to determine the world’s best extreme kayakers.

Centre of the race action is the Wellerbrücke section of the glacier-fed Ötztaler Ache River that has the reputation of being the Eiger Northwall of whitewater kayaking. In total, only 175 competitors are admitted to the World Championship. The top 52 athletes can qualify to compete in the world championship race at Wellerbrücke.
