The Rules of Dual
The format of the day is a round of qualification followed by head to head racing.
Dual Slalom is an elbow to elbow, knockout race format.
Each pair of riders will race twice, once in each lane negotiating the obstacles.
The rider with the fastest combined time will move through to the next round.
Riders are seeded so that the slowest faces the fastest in the first round.
They are ordered so the fastest two seeded riders won’t meet until the finals.
Qualification is decided by the fastest times set during a solo run in one lane.
Riders will have to qualify, there are 32 places for the lads, 16 for the lasses.
If a rider falls, their time becomes that of their opponents plus 1.5 seconds. This gives them a chance for a comeback.
There is a round of 32, then 16, the quarter finals with 8 riders, and semi finals with 4.
The winners of the semis meet in the big final, the losers race for 3rd place in the small final.
If a rider misses a gate they are penalised by 25 seconds.
