100% Dual Slalom Rotorua

100% Dual Slalom Rotorua

This crowd-pleasing format pits two competitors against one another in a side-by-side battle against each other and the clock’s cruel hand as racers battle to avoid elimination. The finely sculpted track of jumps, berms, rhythm sections and grass turns makes for a daring bike-handling battleground, challenging racers from every discipline to dig deep and put down the power. Riders take one run down each side of the course, with the fastest combined time taking the win. Each lap through the track raises the stakes and works up everyone’s appetite to win.
