Could the Sea Otter classic, the season opener for high-level mountain-bike racing in the US, host a full-on Slopestyle competition? Sea Otter promoters think so. I an announcement last week, they hinted that, barring final details, the downhill set will have one more reason to gear up for Sea Otter.
"We're still ironing out the details at this point and hope to make an 'official' announcement in a couple weeks," says Sea Otter's Director of Athlete Services, Jeff Frost.
An announcement of competition details should come in December.
