Event Overview

FRIDAY, june 7

A differential is taken from one rider to the next, then racers switch sides and battle it out again, until the top three are standing on the podium. Be prepared for tight berms, big rollers, and exciting jumps!

NEW for 2024!
Bring your best trick to compete in the GoPro Jump Jam immediately following the GoPro Dual Slalom Finals on Friday, June 7th at 5:45 PM.

ALSO NEW for 2024!
We are working to eliminate waste at the GoPro Mountain Games so all Aid Stations will be going cupless for 2024. As part of our continued focus on sustainability, participants will receive a free collapsible cup at registration that can be used at all Mountain Games bike events. All athletes should be aware of this change and come prepared for all races.

Format & Seeding:

Qualifying round:

  • Racers must complete one timed run down each side of the slalom track. Their time is then combined.

  • The number of riders that will move on to the finals will be based on the total number of athletes registered in each category.
  • In the event of a tie on total qualifying times, ties shall be broken at random for the higher seeded position. (coin flip, drawing lots)


  • Racers will line up according to their seeding order and will race head-to-head against their opponent. Each racer must complete a run on both sides of the track.
  • The racer with the fastest combined time after runs on both sides of the track will be the winner of that round and move on to the next round. The slower racer will be eliminated.
