The 2012 Volkswagen Sea Otter Classic got on the way today with quite a few competitive events and the typical monster sizes expo. We snooped around and captured a few impressions from the day.

A beautiful day welcomed all athletes, industry folks and visitors to this annual cycling extravaganza. The Pro Criterium was one of the first events of the day but after those athletes went back to their respective hotels, amateur road cyclists and downhill skateboarders tested their mettle at Laguna Seca Raceway.

But the Sea Otter Classic isn't just about racing, it is an excellent family entertainment event, plus there is tons of gear to see and play with.
