PRESS RELEASE: Sea Otter Classic and Truvativ are pleased to announce a comprehensive makeover for Sea Otter’s current downhill course. Bike park builders Momentum Trail Concepts will author and implement course renovations with the collaborative project slated for the spring of 2011.
Sea Otter serves as cycling’s opening event each year, kicking off the riding season by offering racing in nearly every mountain bike discipline, the festival features downhill (DH) as one of its premier competitions, drawing competitors and journalists from around the world. Located on the Laguna Seca Recreational Area in the Monterey County Parks system, the existing course is exhibiting signs that it’s been well loved with the resulting wear and tear causing impacts to the course’s flow.
“Truvativ’s parent company SRAM has never failed to creatively add to the event – for over a decade their partnership has made Sea Otter a better experience for attendees and competitors alike,” offers Sea Otter president and CEO Frank Yohannan, “Their contribution on the downhill course project and the high bar they’ve established for what success looks like maintains that tradition. Their efforts will make the 2011 course better for athletes in all categories.”
