Sea Otter Classic - NE

USA, April 8, 2006

Road racing slimmed down for 2006

Sea Otter's tradition of hosting a road stage race has been stalled; the road component of the 2006 event has been reduced to Saturday's single National Race Calendar circuit race. As usual, the circuit race will wind around the visually interesting Laguna Seca raceway, with its challenging 300-foot climb and high-speed Corkscrew downhill.

The Lipton, Cheerwine, Touchstone Climbing, Velo-Bella Kona, PABW Powered by Tibco, Colavita/Cooking Light, Webcor, McGuire, Victory Brewingare teams are all registered for the twenty-two-lap (50 mile) pro women's race.

BMC Racing Team, Cal Giant/Village Peddler, Pacific State Bank/Anderson Homes, Monex, Orbea, Healthnet, Jelly Belly, Kodakgallery.com/Sierra Nevada, Team Spine, Team Rubicon, Team Successful Living Presented by Parkpre are all set up to compete in the thirty-one lap (70 mile) pro men's race.
