Contest Info: This year's event will be a three day event. Each racer will have to participate in the qualifying rounds. There will be a seperate qualifying round for each event.

Open Women
Open Boys (15 and under)
Open Girls (15 and under)

SlalomCross - Paso Robles Spa & Hot Springs - Friday Starting Time - TBA
Click here for the Paso Robles SlalomCross location map. You will need to zoom in a bit on the map. Buenavista is ine mile east of Highway 101 on Hwy 46. You will turn left on Buenavista.

Just past the Cuesta College Paso Campus you will see a sign for the Paso Robles Hot Springs and Spa on your left. Park only in designated areas or your car will be towed.
Total length of the course will be almost 1100’. Approximately 60 cones. The course surface is rated 6/7 on a scale of 10. Hay bales will be set in critical sections.

Each racer will be given two qualifying runs. There will be very high importance placed on qualifying fast. Bracketing will be the typical 1-32, 2-31 set up. The higher qualifier in each heat will be given lane choice. In the head to head racing there will be no clock, first racer across the finish line wins. One heat per bracket, winner advances. No second run, no switching lanes.

Starts will be from the FCR Ramps - no pushing will be allowed on course.

Qualifying Cone penalties:
Cones displaced from circle or knocked over = .2 second

Head to Head Cone penalties:
Six cones displaced from circle or knocked over = OK.
Seven cones displaced from circle or knocked over =DQ

Incidental contact in the PT section is allowable. Any contact used to create an advantage will result in a DQ. This isn’t roller derby.

The course begins with a stinger for each racer

After the stinger the road turns right and steepens, this is where the two courses become one
and "pass thru gates" are used. Both racers would pass through two cones set 6' to 8' apart.

Next the road turns left and steepens even more...three "pass thru" gates in this section.

This a shot from below of the section before the steep and the steep.

The steep section leads into an off-camber right hand turn followed by a slight uphill section. After clearing the final "pass thru" gate each racer will return to his color coded lane for the remainder of the course.

As you crest the slight uphill section the road turns back to the left, followed by a moderate final pitch.

As you can see there is a great runout.

The entire course is 3/10 of a mile long. Below is a shot of the Paso Robles Spa and Hot Springs located at the bottom of the course.

Dual Slalom - Not GS - Morro Bay- Saturday
Starting Time - TBA
Click here for a map of the Pacific Street venue.

Starts will be from the FCR Ramps
Qualifying And Finals Cone penalties:
Cones displaced from circle or knocked over = .2 second
The course runs toward the ocean, so when you are in the starting gates you will be looking out over the Pacific Ocean. We have four blocks, the middle block is quote long. The last block will be the slow down area, some foot braking will be required.

The hill starts off with a nice little pitch then levels off into a slight grade the rest of the way. I coasted the hill in my car and reached 30mph before I reached the finish line.

The surface is not great, however it's not bad. The street was slurred sealed about a year ago. Soft wheels will definitely help with traction.

Due to the fact that the street is not real steep, this event will be "Slalom" instead of "Giant Slalom".

The street is bordered by a residential area on one side and a business/residential area on the other. I would like to ask everyone to please be careful and respectful of peoples lawns and landscaping. There will also be times when we will need to let residents access their homes by vehicle. Thanks in advance for your cooperation.
