LET THE FUN BEGIN

Well the Sea Otter Classic has come and gone for another year and we were there again.
What could you say about the SEA OTTER CLASSIC other than it’s one of the greatest bike festivals any avid cyclist could ever attend. Held at the Mazda Raceway [Laguna Seca Raceway] in Monterey, California every May, it’s one to not miss.
Every cycling discipline is just about represented, so what better way to show you Sea Otter 2017 then through the eye of the camera lens and after long hours of going through thousands of photos this is what we have for you in the coming Sea Otter Classic 2017 segments, so sit back and enjoy .
