It’s that time! We excited to once again be attending the Sea Otter Classic, April 10-13, 2014! In addition to having the worthy mission of “making people’s lives better through participation in sport and recreation and through celebration of an active outdoor lifestyle,” Sea Otter is known for its incredible attendance — some 65,000 fellow bike folk (including professional riders, cycling enthusiasts, and the best bike gear companies) will be out and celebrating all things cycling at this weekend’s season opener in beautiful Monterey, California.

NRL Racing Team at Sea Otter Classic 2011

May 9th, 2011

The NRL Racing Team had a great time at the Sea Otter Classic visiting many of our wonderful sponsors like Osprey Packs. As usual, the venue was hustling and bustling with activity, showing that the bike community is a strong one.

For those of you who didn’t go, yes, you did miss out on a bunch of cool stuff. Here is a sampler.

  1. Brian Lopes vs Jared Graves on the Dual Slalom Finals. Both racers are multiple world champs. epic.
  2. Sea Otter Road Stage race! This was the first time this was held and it was a huge success.
  3. Awesome sneak peeks at the latest and greatest…but you already knew that.

I hope next year they have a pro mountain bike stage race with the following stages. This was an event in the past, but it is not at the current moment.

Thursday = Individual TT of around 20 minutes. gives seeding for STXC Race call ups.

Friday = STXC Race

Saturday = XC Race

Sunday = Super D Race, Individual TT style.

All around, a super fun time! Look forward to it again next year.

Osprey Devours Sea Otter

If you love bikes, then the Sea Otter Classic in Monterey, California was the place to be April 14th -17th. Sea Otter, as it is most commonly called, is a celebration of all things bike and acts as a kick start for the spring cycling season. Besides the jam packed competitive schedule that includes road, short track, cross country, downhill, and dual slalom racing, Sea Otter is an amazing bicycle festival with something fantastic for bicycle lovers of all disciplines.

Companies from around the globe exhibit at the Sea Otter Expo, often introducing new or upcoming products and mingling with the 50,000+ attendees. Non-profits and bicycle advocacy groups are in attendance to promote their cause and raise awareness for cycling related issues. Top name professional athletes use the Sea Otter as an early season test of fitness and shakedown of the new seasons equipment. The entire vibe surrounding the Sea Otter Classic leaves you wanting to hop on a bike and ride, whether it be for a joy ride down the coastal bike route or a top speed flight around the grueling race course.

Here is a pictorial journey showing a few of my favorite Sea Otter memories.
