Roots Racing

13 Nov

1968, the first World Cup race ever held in Canada. It was a wicked slalom set down Red Mountain’s double diamond face. Fans lined the course and the event was sponsored by Maurier cigarettes. Jean Claude Killy flew in on a private chopper, ran the race, won it, and flew out. It was all rock and roll back then. And I like it.
