Info right now on the Dual is limited. No worries, the event IS happening... There are already over 50 riders registered in the dual discipline alone and spots are filling fast!
The course will be unique mixing traditional DS traits, with some creative elements, tons of flow. ie: ds pump track on steroids. More info soon... In the meantime, we found an old school video from the vault:
Shawn, I was wondering if you've tried to get any TV coverage for the Open and if so how did that go? I bet you could get some news coverage before and after to draw a little bigger crowd for this year and some more people to Diablo for the rest of the season.
The rm questions absolutely blow my mind. why would anybody ask if there is going to be a ds and when they are building it. if the us open is coming up when do you think they are going to build it. Also if you want to know what a ds course looks like look it up on youtube because you all obviously have the time to think of the dumbest questions possible so you could post them on the rm forum.
I asked WHERE they are putting it, and I've been racing slalom since 2000...I know what it looks like, but they said it was going to have nontraditional features...I'm just curious if anyone has any info...
ok I think it is time to finalize all plans here, has anyone sneaked a peak at the DS course? This past weekend maybe? I know a DS course is a DS course, but I have been to courses that consisted of a serpent course down a smooth steep field and I have been to full out supercross tracks down the side of a mountain, Just trying to get a heads up, if it is going to be traditional Diablo terrain, there is no need to even pack the hardtail DJ bike and convert the tires. Thanks for the info. See everyone at the OPEN!!!!!!!!!
They just started on the course on Sunday. They were trucking big loads of dirt over to it. It is located over by where the domination race course ends. Looks like it will be all dirt with no rocks, but I can't say for sure.
i doubt it, too much work. i dont want to race this weekend but i would love to ride the ds track, my two favorite things, bmx racing and downhill mixed into one sport, i need a hardtail or short travel though.
