Details

This unique dual slalom mountain bike race, will see riders race head-to-head, two at a time, down a course in an exhilarating knockout-style event. The fastest two riders of the day will then take each other on in the Grand Final.

The course will take the riders from the top of Howard Street towards the railway station via a descent along grassy and gritty slopes, across the front of Sheffield Hallam University's main central campus building and finishing behind The Howard pub. The course even includes some special custom-made wooden features to provide extra thrills. With cow bells and noise makers lining the track, the racers will be cheered from top to bottom making it great fun for the whole family and the best hecklers in town.

As well as the Howard Street Dual, headline events of The Outdoor City Weekender will be the Magnificent Seven bike race, the Sheffield Adventure Film Festival (ShAFF) and the Climbing Works International Festival (CWIF).
