FOX RACING Dual Slalom
PRESENTED BY PINKBIKE
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. Gear up for an iconic Sea Otter experience elevated to an entirely new level in 2023.
Dual Slalom is categorized by ability and age classes, and we offer Para, Non-binary and eBike categories. Registration includes a four-day festival pass, hydration zone access, complimentary parking, medals to the top-three finishers in each category, and custom jerseys for race winners.
