6 vs 4

I'm not for or against six-wheelers. But I have to say that in all my years helping to run races, it has seemed extremely rare that six-wheelers have a noticeable advantage . I've only seen them win once or twice, on courses that could be best described as Super-G. Much more often I've seen excited...

You don't really need big hills or big ramps to have a really good event. If the event is fun competitors will come and make the event better. You wouldn't want to build a BAR ramp just because you are hardly racing on a hill. Yes big ramp, bid hills are narly but slalom is about ones ability to pro...

As discused years ago each country should have their own slalom association. ISSA represents slalomers around the world as a whole.

In time ISSA would likely want to have timers available around the world to make sure races are easier to on.
