The Sea Otter Classic
starts this Thursday and events run through Sunday. Located at the Mazda Raceway outside of Monterey, California, the Sea Otter Classic host all types of racing (including cross-country, dual-slalom, downhill and short track) and will serve as the unofficial 2014 model intro for many bike and product companies. Short track action falls on Friday this year so don't miss out as riders like #3 Max Plaxton (this year Cannondale mounted), Todd Wells (1) and Sam Schultz (4) will be taking on all contenders, including, we expect, 2012 Olympic gold medalist Jaroslav Kulhavy.
