For a bit of history and their website, head to The story of UK slalom and have a read.
The UKSSA will be running two disciplines at Hogtoberfest: Dual Hybrid slalom and Giant slalom, both of which are timed and both of which involve a totally not straight line of cones to get down. The difference is that the dual hybrid is a race side-by-side with tight cone spacing whereas with giant it's just you and the whole thing is faster, steeper and more all over the hill.
Want to know a bit more about the slalom scene ? Catch up with Louis and Bruno in this video:
The slalom wouldn't be happening without the ever orange Octane Sport ramps. Michael Stride , a force to be reckoned with when it comes to super fast slalom times and ridiculously large ranges of longboard gear will be bringing a van of timing gear, start ramps and most likely a decent amount of shop stock along to the hill. Go check it out at www.octanesport.com!
