Snow and Bikes: A Case for a More Suitable Mix in Snow Sports Events

Snow Bike World Championships 2024: A Social Roundup

The idea of mixing snow and bikes in the way it’s being suggested is not practical or makes sense. Instead of using bikes as substitutes for skis in slalom skiing, fatbike XC courses could be a better alternative. These courses would still require the fundamental skills of XC racing but in a unique format. Another suggestion would be to create a “skiercross but on bikes” event, similar to Dual Slalom but with larger and more elaborate courses. Using bikes with skis instead of tires on these courses could add an extra level of excitement.

It’s worth considering that snow could just be left as the domain of skiing and 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 the traditional activities for snow sports. Ultimately, it’s important to explore all options and find what works best for each individual athlete and event.
