Snow and Bikes: Why Mixing Slalom Skiing and Biking is Not Practical or Logical”.

Snow Bike World Championships 2024: A Social Roundup

As a journalist, I feel that the idea of mixing snow and bikes in slalom skiing is not practical or logical. Even if there is a desire for wintertime biking on snow events, there are better options that the UCI can explore to make something more interesting to watch.

One suggestion would be to create fatbike XC courses, which would still require the fundamental skills of XC racing but in a unique format. Another idea would be to hold a “skiercross but on bikes” event, similar to Dual Slalom but with larger and more elaborate courses. Using bikes instead of tires on these courses could add an extra level of excitement and make it more visually appealing.

It’s also worth considering that snow could just be left as the domain of skiing for those who enjoy riding fatbikes through snowy woods. This is a more suitable and enjoyable option for some people who would rather stick to traditional activities for snow sports.
