Bike vs. Skis: The Debate on Mixing Snow and Bikes in Skiing Events

The idea of mixing snow and bikes in the way it’s being suggested is not practical or logical. Using bikes as substitutes for skis in slalom skiing doesn’t make sense, and the UCI should explore better options to make something more interesting to watch. Instead of using bikes for 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. However, it’s also worth considering that snow should 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.
