For the first time ever was this year Euro Cup in canoe freestyle officially held under ECA.
The EC series consisted of three events: Plattling (Germany), Prague (Czech Republic) and Cunovo (Slovakia). The last and the final event in Cunovo was the test for the upcoming kayak freestyle European Championships 2014, which will be held at the same place.
Over 110 paddlers came to fight for the title of the Euro Cup Champion. Only two best results of the three event are counted so until the last competition there has not been decided who will win.
At the end there were new champions in each category who took home the medals and honor of winning the first official ECA kayak freestyle Euro Cup 2013.
