Dual Slalom Pro Racing

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
I was a big fan of the dual sl pro racing format in the 80's and early 90's and was lucky enought to do a little of it at a recreational level (complete with barn door start gates and mid-course jumps on a good day!) Can anyone tell me if this format survives anywhere in the world today and where I can find any info on the halcyon days of pro racing?

Off the top of my head I would say check Japan--they used to love that stuff, and other arcane forms of skiing competition.
Personally I always thought that format, particularly in SL, was retarded--the double cross-block, or whatever they used to clear the paneled(!) SL gates. Poor Felix McGrath.

Why even attempt a cross-block? Just clear the gate with the inside arm like a pannelled GS gate. Most of the time the course rythm was somewhere between a GS and SL and not too far across the fall line anyways. The Bozo Cup--now that looks like fun!

Sugar Slalom tradition, every Sunday of the festival, dual gate, dual panel slalom. Usually the best points race for open USSA in the country.

btw Bozo cup doesnt even seem to be slalom per gate width or lenght.
