Whistler Bike Park Trails: Crankworx Dual Slalom course at Base 2 on Blackcomb Mountain

Raw rivalry is the name of the game in Dual Slalom. This old-school race format pits two competitors against one another in a side-by-side battle against the clock’s cruel hand, battling to avoid elimination. Dual Slalom is unique in that it brings together racers from all backgrounds. Enduro experts, downhill champions, freeride legends, and masters of style – they all line up at the Slalom start gate to see who can bring together the most explosive run through tight turns, jumps and rhythm sections. Riders take one run down each side of the course, with the fastest combined time taking the win. Whistler’s race has now expanded into a Crankworx World Championship discipline, with races staged at each stop on the Crankworx World Tour.
