Holloway, Crowell win Sea Otter circuit race

There's one word to accurately describe the closing day of the 23rd Annual Volkswagen Sea Otter Classic Powered by SRAM: speed. Today's competitive events lent themselves to the type of rider that leads with their chin - those hyperfit daredevils tucked in tight, mashing an enormous gear, and relying upon their inner pinner to get them across the finish line first.

Case in point, spectators were treated to the blurred spectacle of the men's and women's pro road fields as they descended the corkscrew section of today's circuit races at speeds estimated to exceed 60mph. The riders seemed to be flying, the chase car in hot pursuit, all four of its tires squealing as it marked the rear of the field. Daniel Holloway (Mike's Bikes) edged out a massive sprint field of 42 riders for the men's pro circuit race win, while Jacqueline Crowell (Exergy Twenty 16) edged out Flavia Oliviera (DNA Cycling) to earn the top step on the women's podium.
