Sea Otter Classic, Where Friends Are Made – Jake’s Blog

IMG_0422The Sea Otter Classic is one of my favorite events in the country!  We have attended the Sea Otter Classic for 5 years in a row.  Each year we attend Sea Otter we get to meet racing legends and cool people!  Starting at our first year at Sea Otter we’ve continuously met some of the most well-known athletes in the world.  We’ve met Pro Racers like Todd Wells, Geoff Kabush, Kathryn Pendrel and Emily Batty.  IMG_1510Last year we even met the World Champ Nino Schuter after he had just won the Sea Otter Classic Pro XC Race!  SO COOL!  That year we also met Shimano Sponsored Pro Motocross Racer Justin Barsha while he was hanging out at the Shimano Booth!IMG_1474         This year while we were waiting in line to finish our last Enduro we were amazed to see Danny Macaskill doing a backwards nose-wheelie down the famous Corckscrew!  Later, we were even able to get his autograph and a pic with him!  Sea Otter is awesome!IMG_0669  I also love attending Sea Otter because we get to say “Hi” and hang out with our racing friends, and friends from the bike industry!   This year we even shared a campsite with a racing friend, Troy Dibert.  Camping with Troy was really fun and enjoyable, as we told jokes, shared stories and just had a good time.  The Sea Otter Classic has become more than just a races event, to me it is a place to say “Hello” to all of your old friends and to make new friends, which in my mind in just as priceless as winning the Sea Otter Classic.
