Welcome to the 16” Dual Slalom – now this is fun…. 2 riders going head-to-head down a grass dual-slalom track on 16” kids bikes! Anyone who has seen this race in previous years knows its one of the funniest bike events to watch and is unmissable if you are anywhere near the mountain.
There’ll be a BBQ and a bar at the base of the track, loads of spectators lining the course, and pumping tunes all to add to the race atmosphere.
A limited number of entries will be taken online beforehand with a top-up taken on the day to ensure we have the best and worst riders possible. 16” bikes will be provided and we encourage anyone who wants to have a crack to step up and have a go. All races will be head to head – elimination style - with a single run down the track, the winner progresses to the next round which leads to a final and a bonus $50 cash injection to your wallet (or purse) for 1st
[You don't always have to be fast to win - you just need to keep it upright! Last year we saw some big name riders taken down by those that took a more conservative line. So sign up if you want to be part of the fun OR if you'd rather watch then bring a beer and cow bell for a great night.]
