Blazing sun, dust, and berms. That's a pretty accurate summary of the dual slalom action at the 2013 Sea Otter Classic dual slalom race. The mens's pro finals came down to a head to head match between Peaty and Graves, with Peaty making it to the last round on his 27.5” wheeled Santa Cruz Bronson, only to get bumped out of contention by Jared Graves aboard a lowered Yeti SB66. Mitch Ropelato was slated to appear in the little final, but apparently succumbed to heat stroke and wasn't able to make his start time.
In the pro women's division, Jill Kintner successfully defended her title, narrowly beating Rachel Atherton to the finish line. Third and fourth place ended up as a battle between Anneke Beerten and Luana Oliveira, with Luana claiming the third place position.
