Who doesn’t like a sea otter? My favorite part about the Sea Otter Classic, is the fact that it revolves around a cuddle craving mammal known for its playful nature. Sure, I have heard the race referred to as the Sea Slaughter, but of course that interpretation depends on how you are feeling when racing. Me? I prefer playful and cuddly.
The Sea Otter Classic continues to be one of my favorite races on the calendar because it gives me the opportunity to feel mildly uncool when compared to the mountain bikers and other dirt trick riders. I love immersing myself within the different disciplines and appreciating what a wide range of talent and skill our sport contains. Anything that you dare to dream of within the cycling industry is there. If you like bikes, you will feel like you are a kid in a candy shop. And then the best part is, you can then go race your bike!
