2011 Sea Otter Classic - Day 3

This is the final day of the slowtwitch 2011 Sea Otter Classic coverage, but the event still goes on tomorrow. Today we went through the Expo again and checked out the Pro TT event which was held a few miles away from the Laguna Seca Recreation area.

Quite a few people were in line early in the morning to check out the event.

It is great to start cyclists early and here they were taught some skills.

It appears someone is out testing one of the Try&Buy prologo saddles.

These crankbrothers guys were working hard all day giving love to pedals.

Endurance Conspiracy was well represented at Sea Otter by Elize DeBoom, who also happened to represent sunburn like many other folks at the event.

There are lots of activities for kids at Sea Otter with events going on the the background.

The fight was on all day in the Truvativ booth.

Motorsport stars are not the only folks to get great attention. This pic was taken just before the female Pro cross country race.
