Another Sea Otter Classic in the Bag

0

Another Year at the Sea Otter Classic. This year though the trip south was extended slightly through dealer visits, a marketing conference and then finally to the Laguna Seca Raceway for the main Event. Over the course of 16 days I visited 11 bike shops, watched 11 Ryan Leech demos and managed to squeak in 2 short mountain bike rides. As usual here I will let a few of the pictures from the trip speak instead of an essay of blathering..

The Making of a Champion

I have been working for a while now with Yess Products, Norco Bicycles and Jill Kintner on the production of her custom Slalom bike that she raced in Sea Otter. The idea was to follow the bike from start to finish. The full article can be found on norco.com but here are a few shots and a video from the production process.

 



The Sea Otter Does Downhill

2012 Sea Otter Classic DH was inked today. Starting off in some thick fog the track was cool until the sun broke through for the last of the elite men. Some great racing action with Jill Kintner taking the win for the women and Jared Graves for the Men.

The DH marked the end of the crazy week of racing. It was a lot of fun but it is time to head home. Time to sleep, time to eat and time to ride a bike rather than just watching others…

 

Again, short and sweet but here are a few photos from the race.

A Taste of Sea-Otter-Ness Racing

All work and no play makes the world grow bitter.

Well I am not bitter and Sea Otter is pretty awesome but I am pretty tired right now so this post will be brief. Here are a few photos from the Dual Slalom and Cyclocross races.

Another Dry Sea Otter – They are better that way!

Another year, another trip to the wonderful Sea Otter Classic. Four days of racing, riding, demos, events and trade-show awesomeness!!! Looking back the trip down south was 11 days 4000km, 6 burritos, too much beer, one ride and about 20GB of media to work my way through. Here are a few photos from the trip. Next year, think about heading down, it is a whole lot of fun.

California – Mid-Trip Update

0

Down in California soaking in the rays at the 2011 Sea Otter Classic. Situated at the world famous Laguna Seca raceway in Monterey California motor-heads and video-game aficionados can drool over the location. Despite the octane-centric frame of mind, once a year four days of pedal bike action take over the raceway. After the drive south from Vancouver and two days of the show, this is the halfway point in the event. To commemorate this momentous occasion, here are a few photos as of so far.
