Gorgeous weather and massive crowds kicked off a killer weekend at the Sea Otter Classic with a schedule packed with races from the kids to the pros. The early morning hours brought a layer of fog and hundreds of Gran Fondo riders to the rolling hills and coastal roads around Monterey County. The Gravel Grinder and MTB Tour riders rolled out shortly thereafter to traverse the scenic trails and roads of the Fort Ord National Monument.
Afternoon crowds lined up to cheer on racers in one of Sea Otter's most popular events—
the Dual Slalom—
which was as exciting as ever. The expo was hopping with food and drinks flowing in the food court, Sierra Nevada beer garden and also at exhibitor booths.
Swing into Sunday with the pros hitting the cross country and downhill courses in the morning hours and amateurs racing in road, circuit, dual slalom and downhill. There's tons of activities going on in the Kids Ride Zone—
everyone's favorite egg hunt at 10 a.m., and kids' races at 11 a.m. Your last opportunity to demo a bike on the raceway happens at 11 a.m. Don't miss out!
