 I wish chicksands would do some dual slalom races or mini dh races!!!they would get packed out if they did that!but they only seem to do 4x races for some reason
  • + 3
 Because 4X is awesome and gets more people than a dual race would Smile

 Think it's a lot to do with organisation as well. 4X would be a bit easier to run than Dual or DH as it doesn't require hiring timing systems out for it

 There was a dual race couple of years back, great fun. I would love to see more Similar format to 4X so not too hard to run

 They had a mini dh ages ages ago with the help of nakedracing or whoever it is who does the mini dh 661 races at fod.why not collaborate again for dual or dh.what the south east needs are more races like these so you don't have to keep travelling all the time!it would be huge if chicksands dome.something similar
