Sea Otter adds criterium

The Sea Otter Classic added a fourth day of road racing to its schedule. A new criterium will be held on Thursday, April 16 for nearly all amateur and professional categories.

"The additional race makes the Sea Otter Classic an even better value for road cyclists, who now have the opportunity to compete in three different events – road racing, circuit racing, and crit racing," said Jeff Frost, Director of Athlete Services. "We expect this event to be very popular."

The race will be held on the Laguna Seca raceway, with an uphill turn and technical turn-arounds at each end of the one-mile, hotdog-shaped course. Each race will last 30 to 60 minutes, depending on the category.
