Norcal Racing This Weekend: Apr 5 - Apr 9, 2006

So we're getting a jump on this weekend's MTB racing action with the start of mid-week local races and then the big Sea Otter event.
  • The racing starts tomorrow (WEDNESDAY) at the kickoff of the Prairie City Racing Series near Folsom, CA [ MAP ]. Come down for enduro style XC racing as a tune up for your season.
  • The racing moves from local to international and foothills to coast with the first day of the Sea Otter Classic. Held in Laguna Seca Raceway near Monterey, CA [ MAP ]. THURSDAY at the event is mostly pre-riding practice and registration type stuff for the Amateurs, but the pros start Stage 1 of their MTB race with the Super XC (Women at 10:00 AM, Men at 11:30 AM).
  • On FRIDAY, the Sea Otter begins in earnest. Pro time trials and amateur dual slalom in the morning, amateur mountain cross qualifying and short track XC in the afternoon.
  • SATURDAY brings more amateur short track in the morning, the short track race in the MTB Stage race and the dual slalom finals.
  • SUNDAY is the amateur XC and mountain cross competition, the semi-pro and pro downhill finals and the final XC race of the MTB stage race.
You can see the whole Sea Otter schedule here. It should be a big week(end). And don't forget to pray for sunshine.
