The 100% Dual Slalom provided some tense racing for all the riders. With the right line faster for most heats, it made for some tense racing to see who could hold onto their advantage. In the Pro Men, it would be the young American Matthew Sterling who would take the gold medal with Mitch Ropelato crashing out on both of his finals runs. For the Pro Women, Vaea Verbeeck would look great throughout the heats and would just take the win from Kialani Hines in a close final. Results:
1st. Matthew Sterling
2nd. Mitch Ropelato
3rd. Luca Cometti
4th. Keegan Wright
1st. Vaea Verbeeck
2nd. Kialani Hines
3rd. Anneke Beerten
4th. Danielle Beecroft
