KIRT VOREIS’ storied career started in Southern California more than two decades ago, so finding this zone near Calico, California, where he grew up, was all the more meaningful. While we were there, Voreis’ uncle came out and told us about how he and Voreis used to ride their motos all over back in the day. We stumbled upon this hip, and it was almost natural. It took a little bit of shaping and we had to fill in a few runnels at the bottom, but it was basically just sitting there, unused and undiscovered. The dirt started out dry and dusty, but after two days of hard rain, the conditions were primed for Voreis to showcase his timeless style.
