Description

This years course starts out on the Laguna Seca Raceway, heads out onto Barloy Canyon road for a little and then up to the top of Lookout Ridge Road. As usual the course takes you down Lookout Ridge Road but for the Cat 2 riders this year you get to head up trail 50 and then head out Sandstone Ridge Road to drop down the beach, climb 82, do the full 49, climb up 42 (Red Rock).

At the top of 42, you'll turn right on Three Sisters Road and then drop down Trail 43 (Ewok) and then take a left to start your climb back to Laguna Seca via the grind (Pilarcitos Canyon Road). Of course just when you think youre done climbing youll get diverted on Skyline Road for a bonus loop to drop down into Coach Canyon on trail 47 and do the final climb out to Laguna Seca.

History & Background

This mountain bike racing event has been going on since 1991, was named the Sea Otter Classic in 1993 and is regarded as the worlds premier cycling festival. It's a big deal.
