New Zealand's two semi-finalists at the canoe slalom World Cup in Italy have failed to advance.

Callum Gilbert was 24th-fastest and Finn Butcher 37th in the 40-paddler semis at Ivrea on Saturday, with only the top-10 advancing.

Rio Olympics-bound paddler Mike Dawson failed to qualify through the heats on Friday.

The event was won by Italian Giovanni de Gennaro.

Rio-bound paddler Luuka Jones is skipping the regatta and will contest the second World Cup in Spain next week.
