Author Posts July 3, 2016 at 9:20 pm #191892 Reckoneer Dual Slalom is the most intense, enjoyable, and spectator friendly event any mountain bike race promoter can produce. But I always thought the creation of dual slalom course was anything but simple. I thought I had to engineer a design, excavate tons of dirt, polish and pack huge berms, and promote this flavor of gravity mountain bike race like you would a Downhill or 4X event. What I found was that none of that is true! And to back that up, I put my research into two exclusive articles that go deep into promoting dual slalom events: The first one details how professional dual slalom courses are built: http://www.reckoneer.com/build/7-secrets-to-dual-slalom-course-design/ The second gives you in-depth guidelines for how you can build your own dual slalom race on the cheap: http://www.reckoneer.com/build/bootstrap-your-first-dual-slalom-race/ Both these articles prove a very important point: you too can actually build a dual slalom race! It doesn’t take a degree in civil engineering, nor bags of money. I just takes vision, determination, some creativity, and a solid strategy. Sure, implementing your plan you’ll require manpower, trail work, experimentation, permits, and marketing — but these are the same mechanics that any mountain bike race will need. But knowing that anyone can build a dual slalom race is a huge first step in getting your first gravity race off the ground. And knowing is half the battle!
