TWO ROWER CANOE (C2) IS THE OLDEST RACE OF LA CLASSIQUE. 
THE BOAT MUST FOLLOW THE STANDARDS OF THE NORTH-AMERICAN CIRCUIT.

Since 1934, C2 is the pillar discipline of La Classique Internationale de Canots de la Mauricie. The two brothers, Serge and Claude Corbin, as well as Irwin Peterson, Andrew Triebold and Steve Lajoie, are recognized as legends of this competition. They made La Classique history by repeatedly winning this challenging race. Furthermore, La Classique is the last step of the Triple Crown. The Saint-Maurice river remains a major challenge for these athletes.

THE FOUR ROWER CANOE (C4) IS A 2017 ADDITION AND BRINGS A NEW CATEGORIE AT THE CLASSIQUE.

A demonstration sport in 2016, the category has rapidly gained in popularity. Halfway between a two-person canoe and a Rabaska, the C4 gives the Classique internationale de canots de la Mauricie an additional event option that can be held on the magnificent Saint-Maurice River.

La Classique welcomes for the second year the canoe-kayak K1 and K2, a discipline that will strengthen the international area. These experienced athletes will participate in sprints and in three mythical phases of La Classique, confronting themselves to the past grand performances.
