    Dual Slalom Qualifying

    My wife and I are racing dual slalom at Sea Otter for the first time this year. I'm trying to figure out what to expect for qualifying vs finals but can't find much info online. How does it work?

    Thanks,

    Richard

    Practice is Thursday 8:00 am to 11:00 am. I highly recommend that you get there for some practice runs. Qualifying is Friday at 1:00 pm. The fastest qualifiers, usually the top 8, will be in the finals Sunday at 9:00 am. This is a rather long process Sunday as you will have to wait at the top for your group to stage. Do not wander far away as they will not wait for you. as the day goes on, the rounds go quicker, as more people are eliminated. The format is head to head, two runs, the combined lower time advances to the next round. Good Luck it is alot of fun.

    Thanks, that's really helpful.

    What do they do when there are a small number of racers in a category? For example, mine only shows 5 of us.

    Well if there are less than 8, probably all will qualify. There will be people who register on site. So the class will grow. If you have never been to the Sea Otter, it is the biggest expo for a bike race. You can spend a whole day just walking the expo.
