Per usual, Dual Slalom was a blast to watch this year at Whistler Crankworx. Tight racing and ripping riders kept spectators glued. In the men’s category little known rider Dakota Norton took the win and surprised everyone, while in the women’s, no one was surprised hardly anyone was shocked that Jill Kintner took the top step.
