The idea of mixing snow and bikes in slalom skiing is not practical or sensible. Even though there may be a desire for wintertime biking on snow events, the UCI should explore better options to make something more exciting to watch.

One suggestion is to create fatbike XC courses that still require the fundamental skills of XC racing but in a unique format. Another idea would be to host 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.

It’s also 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.
