COVID-19 concerns prompt cancellation of the event

The Sea Otter Classic is North America’s big start to the racing season for almost all of cycling, be it road, mountain, downhill or e-MTB racing. The event, held each year at the Laguna Seca race track near Monterey, California, draws 74,000 fans and 9,800 athletes each year from around the globe.

Thank you again for your understanding and support during these challenging times.
