Snow and Bikes: Why Mixing the Two Isn’t All That Exciting

As a journalist, I believe that mixing snow and bikes in the dumbest way possible would be to create a “slalom skiing but with bikes instead of skis.” However, this idea is not practical as bikes are not suitable for slalom skiing. Even if there was a need for “wintertime biking on snow,” there are better options than this.

One option could be for the UCI to create a more compelling event to watch, such as fatbike XC courses. These courses would be similar to standard XC racing but in a unique format. This would provide an exciting alternative to traditional winter sports and attract a wider audience.

Another option could be to borrow something from ski racing and create “skiercross on bikes.” This idea is similar to Dual Slalom but with bigger and more elaborate courses. Using bikes with skis instead of tires could make it even more like skiercross. This would provide an adrenaline-fueled experience for both riders and spectators alike.

In summary, while mixing snow and bikes may seem like an interesting concept, it is not practical or feasible. There are better options available such as fatbike XC courses or “skiercross on bikes” that would be more compelling to watch. It might be better to leave snow as the domain of skiing and for those who enjoy riding their fatbikes through snowy woods.
