THE 17TH ANNUAL SEA OTTER CLASSIC WILL TAKE PLACE ON APRIL 12-15, 2007
EVENT NAME: 17th Annual Sea Otter Classic, a 'Celebration of Sport'
DATE: April 12-15, 2007
LOCATION: Laguna Seca Recreation Area, Monterey, California, USA
WHO: Outdoor sport enthusiasts of all ages and skill levels
DESCRIPTION: The Sea Otter Classic will evolve in 2007 to best its own reputation as the largest, most celebrated cycling festival in North America. Now, the multi-day event, historically known throughout the world as the cycling season's premier kick-off event, will ratchet up an already brimming schedule of cycling events with some key additions that reflect Sea Otter's innovative spirit. The Sea Otter Classic now opens its gates to the ‘08 Olympic sport, BMX Racing; Adventure Racing, where teams must complete the course together – no more than 30 yards apart - using nothing more than a map and compass; and, Super D, a hybrid of downhill and cross-country requiring not only power, but also a finely tuned descending strategy to win.
The Sea Otter Classic has founded its reputation as the go-to event through events like Dual Slalom and Downhill, a Pro Road Circuit Race, Pro Mountain Bike Short Track (The Hurricane of Pain), the Invitational Dirt Jump, Road and Mountain Bike Recreational Rides, Mountain Bike Ride Zone, Bike Rodeo, and BMX Demos. At the center of the non-stop action is the massive Sea Otter Village and Expo, home to the world's largest outdoor consumer bike tradeshow featuring nearly 300 vendors, an international food court and loads of friend and family fun activities. The Sea Otter Classic draws nearly 10,000 professional, amateur and recreational athletes; 50,000 spectators; and, more than 250 media representatives from across the globe.
All recreational events and festival admittance are free to kids under 12! Spectator festival passes are $10 per day or $30 for four days.
