Re: ideas for Improving Slalom

Mig, I couldn't agree more. The ISSA can really only focus on a handful of large events sort of like the IGSA does for downhill. But those large events are failing because there isn't a constant feed of new skaters to fill the ranks. Why is there not enough of a base of skaters to feed the 6 or 8 b...

Tape Switches ... Stay in place even if a racer is off balance and hits the end of the switch (disaster for IR switches). A racer that can turn at speed within inches of a cone can easily hit a 2' timing strip. Aren't those two statements kind of contradictory, Pat? A racer that can turn at speed w...

This is something Dan probably doesn't want to hear but a 1.5" to 2" lower cone while maintaining the same bottom diameter would help minimize cone hits.
