The most successful female canoe slalom paddler has begun the 2019 European season the way she finished 2018. 

The win in the C1 continues her unbeaten streak in the boat class where she won five World Cups, the overall World Cup as well as World Championships gold in last year.
Fox, who only contested the La Seu part of the event series, won the women’s C1 in a time of 104.60 despite a two-second penalty. 

The course in Catalonia will also host the 2019 ICF Canoe Slalom World Championships in September.

However, in the K1, Fox was a notable absentee from the final despite setting the fastest time but she picked up a 50-second penalty in the semi-final. 

“I was happy with my racing, there was a tough judging call on my K1 where I got a 50 second penalty on gate two in the semi-final which kept me out of the final, but overall I was quite happy with that run, and it remained the fastest time of the K1W race," Fox said.

"I finished off well in the C1 to take the win and it’s always nice to start the European season that way."

Fox will be heading to Pau, France for a week before returning to La Seu then back to Australia ahead of the first World Cup in London in June.
