Dual Slalom on Friday, May 22nd has been cancelled. We will run another makeup event on Friday, May 29th.
This spring, SMBA teamed up with Boulder’s Valmont Bike Park to host Colorado’s only dual slalom series. Rounds one and two brought exciting racing in all age groups and categories. The boys and girls junior categories brought out both new and experienced racers who showcased their skills down the berms, jumps and rollers of the two tracks. Round one’s respective winners were: Claire Carlin, Max Vogel, and SMBA’s own Quinn Reece. Round two’s victors were: Shelby Schamacher, Zak Miller and Trent DelGrippe. In the adult classes, the veterans of the class showed what was possible on the little bikes, and battled through intense brackets. Round one was won by: Amy Shenton, Garrett Hamache, and Boulder legend of smooth riding, James Ontiveros. The honorable mention of round one goes out to Jessie Vogt, with a hard fought 2nd place. Round two brought even closer racing, with winners: Harrison Ory, JT Evans and once again Amy Shenton. Unfortunately, this spring’s uncharacteristically wet weather forced the remaining two rounds of the series to be canceled. Thanks to all the volunteers who made this event possible, Yellowbelly chicken for the prizes, Skratch Labs for keeping everyone hydrated, and all the riders for racing and supporting SMBA!
