The Sea Otter Downhill event is an individual race against the clock categorized by ability and age classes. The DH track starts at the top of the Laguna Seca Recreation Area and provides great opportunities for air and technical turns as it follows the flowing contours of the hillside to an exciting sprint finish at the bottom.

Race Registration includes a 4-day Festival Pass, hydration zone with water, chip timing, shuttle, complimentary parking, medals to the top three finishers in each category, and race winners receive a custom jersey.
