Brompton World Championship Race

Brompton Worlds USA will be returning to Sea Otter in 2020! This exciting
event is always a fan favorite.

Almost 100 racers will take their Brompton folding bikes on the race track
to compete for a chance to win a flight to London and entry in to the
coveted Brompton World Championship Finals. But, it won’t look like every
other bike race. First, the Brompton is the iconic folding bike- it’s the
smallest on the market, in part due to its 16-inch wheels. You’ll be
surprised how fast our racers rip around Laguna Seca on it!

Second, and this is what really makes the race, all competitors are required to dress in full business attire to keep up with the proper British feeling of the bike!
