2020 brought clear skies, warm weather, and a brand new course for the 100% Dual Slalom. We saw some incredibly tight racing with very close times and a few upsets along the way. The new course featured the usual berms and rollers, but had the addition of a large scrub jump about halfway down the track. Racers could definitely make up time on the scrub, but it was the flat corners that followed which proved to be the most challenging part of the course.
On the women's side of things, we had many dual slalom regulars like Jill Kintner, Anneke Beerten, Kialani Hines and Vaea Verbeeck. Casey Brown, who isn't necessarily known as a dual racer made an impressive finish and battled Jill in the final heat. In the end, Jill remained dominant with Casey grabbing the silver and Vaea rounding out the podium in third. For the men, we had Kyle Strait finishing up top despite breaking multiple chains throughout the night. Bas Van Steenbergen was looking impressive on course knocking out most of his opponents, save Kyle. Local Matt Walker and US-based Colin Hudson battled it out for third place with Matt narrowly taking the win.
