The GT Bicycles Dual Slalom is on Friday the 15th of June 2018.
Dual Slalom is the purest and most crowd-pleasing form of head to head mountain bike racing where the rivalry is the name of the game. We pit two racers against each other to do battle, with one aim, to beat the other competitor to the finish line!
The two competitors race head-to-head down two similar but separate courses. Following a qualification round, riders race against each other in an elimination format (heats) to determine the winner.
A BMX style start gate will fire the riders down the natural and flowing course on Friday evening. The course features a number of colour coded gates for the riders to pass on the open grass cornered course. Expect the fastest times to be sub 30 seconds on this entry-level course.
Race entries are limited to 200 riders for the Men and 50 for the Women. The top 16 women and top 64 men will qualify for the main event, this will be calculated from your one timed run.
Race entries are now open at £25.00 per entry plus a £1.00 Booking Fee. You can enter by clicking HERE.

-Each rider completes one run on the same
-Each rider that qualifies (the top 64 men and top 16 women) rides each course once and the times for the two runs are added together.
-The fastest qualifier will be seeded against the slowest qualifier and so on.
-The riders will race head to head on each course with the rider holding the faster combined time moving to the next round of the competition.
-Any rider that misses their start slot/call-up will be disqualified.
-Alternating left and right, riders must ride around, not over, each gate, with both tyre tracks passing on the outside of each gate. A missed gate (that is not returned to and passed correctly), or a run over a gate, will result in the maximum time penalty for the rider concerned on that run.
-The most a rider can lose by is the maximum time penalty which is determined for that particular course. The maximum time penalty is calculated by taking 10% of the fastest time recorded in the qualification runs. The time will be rounded out to the nearest 1/10th of a second.
-If there is a tie in the combined times after two runs have been completed by both riders in a heat, the winner of the 2nd run advances to the next round.
-Maximum time penalties will be imposed for the following:
-Changing from one course to another.
