Photo Epic: Dual Slalom - Crankworx Les Gets 2018

Jun 23, 2018
by Matthew DeLorme  


If at first, you don't succeed, try, try again. After not realizing that an unlit DS course would be hard to ride in the dark, Dual Slalom finals were postponed until Saturday. Once the racing got back underway we saw another upset Saturday evening when Rachel Atherton took the win after a hard fought battle with Jill Kintner. Eddie Masters and Bernard Kerr duked it out for the win, with Kerr prevailing.

 This is the sport I love. Not that hard to organize, affordable equipment, exciting racing (both for the riders and spectators). UCI, please bring it back.
