Dual Slalom


Beginner, Intermediate, Para: Friday, April 19, 2024
Expert, Elite: Saturday, April 20, 2024
Juniors, Non-Expert Women: Sunday, April 21, 2024


The Fox Racing Dual Slalom presented by Pinkbike is a Sea Otter fan-favorite. After starting above the rolling hills and roaring crowds at the Laguna Seca Recreation Area, riders will battle side-by-side down identical tracks as they navigate the iconic rollers, flat corners and GIANT berms of the sandy hillside.

Kyle Strait of Strait Acres – arguably one of the best slalom riders and builders in the world — is once again bringing his unrivaled design stamp to Monterey’s marquee mountain bike event. 

Dual Slalom is categorized by ability and age classes, and we offer Para, and Non-binary categories. See below for race inclusions.

For the safety of all athletes, parents/coaches are not permitted to run/ride/accompany junior athletes on the course.

Registration will open in fall 2024.
