Throwback Thursday: Kirt Voreis and Steve Peat, April 2008

Happy Thanksgiving!

We’re going back to April 19, 2008, with this one. It was one of the coldest dual slalom races we’ve ever seen at the Sea Otter, but the action was as hot as usual. That’s Kirt Voreis on the inside line and Steve Peat on the outside line. If you check the specators, a lot of them are wearing heavy jackets, hats and gloves. It was chilly. This coming spring, the Sea Otter is scheduled to take place in May, provided the COVID-19 pandemic doesn’t shut it down again. If that happens, they already have the backup dates in October picked out. We’ll see what happens.
