2015 Season Kick Off at the Sea Otter Classic

April 25, 2015

Now that the dust has settled at the 2015 Sea Otter Classic, we look back to celebrate one of the most successful Otter’s that Northstar California Mountain Bike Team has race.

The Sea Otter Classic is a four-day bike festival and exposition held annually at the Laguna Seca Raceway in Monterrey, CA. Starting in 1991, the Sea Otter has become legendary for many reasons. The festival offers on-site camping surrounded by endless excitement with road, dh, enduro, cyclocross, slalom, xc, dirt jumping, pump track races going on the entire time. At the expo, just about ever vendor related to bikes, come to show the latest products, technologies, and information.   Northstar California Resort came to promote our incredible bike park (which opens May 22nd) and Giant Bikes USA debuted their 2015 bikes, info on their latest products, and opportunities to meet some of their elite factory and co-factory riders.

As a bike racer, the Sea Otter is the official kick off race for the upcoming season. Seven top riders from the Northstar California Mountain Bike Team made the pilgrimage to the Sea Otter this year. With the courses now empty and the festival silent, our riders left with great memories and incredible results. Great work Amber, Scott, Ryan, Lindsay, Genevieve, Jordan, and Joe!
