The Sea Otter Classic, the most enduring harbinger of spring in southern California for the past 25 or…
The Brompton World Championship USA took place on the west coast for the first time in its 10 year history. In place of the stretchy fabric ubiquitous to cycling, the “Bromptoneers” were resplendent in suits, ties, dresses and pantsuits.
Racers in the inaugural eMTB race make their way around the course at the 2016 Sea Otter Classic festivel held in Monterey. The event is the first of it’s kind in the US, though the bikes are raced extensively in Europe.
The Sea Otter Classic continues to break grounds in the cycling community with a new addition to this year’s racing schedule, an eMTB race. This is the first e-bike race of it’s kind in North America, comparable only to the Rad Am Ring track race in Germany. The Sea Otter, however, does things a little differently; this year they will be taking the eMTB off the asphalt and onto dirt with plenty of climbing combined with a challenging cross country course.
