> Mountain Bike Trails near 2014 Sea Otter Classic


MTB Project has launched a new site: Trail Run Project, and we're giving away loads of running gear. Check it out!

Overview


This is the area page for the 2014 Sea Otter Classic, being held from April 10-13.

Race website: seaotterclassic.com

There's a new cross country course in 2014 - but continues the Sea Otter singletrack tradition for each of the cross country race categories. New trails, different distances, lots of climbing, and a few more wide fire road/double tracks sections for passing - are all part of the 2014 experience. Sea Otter Classic cross country is a qualifying event for the USA Cycling National Mountain Bike Championships - visit www.usacycling.org for complete National Championships qualifying information.

For course details, check out the following:
