A European version of the Sea Otter Classic is set to take place in Girona, Spain on June 3rd to 4th in 2017.
Organisers have suggested that the event will be built around the US recipe and include MTB racing, dual slalom, pump tracks, kid’s activities and a large scale product expo.
The event is to be put on alongside GiOutdoor, a European sports promotion business. GiOutdoor organizes the Transpyr Coast to Coast, considered by National Geographic Adventure as one of the ten best Mountain Bike events in the world. They are also the creators of events such as The Pirinexus 360 Challenge and the Sealight-Camí de Llum.
“We are thrilled to have the opportunity to work with GiOutdoor to introduce our celebration of cycling to the European market,” said Frank Yohannan, president and CEO of the Sea Otter Classic. “Reaching more cyclists and outdoor enthusiasts has been the long-standing goal of Sea Otter. Girona and the Costa Brava region is the perfect location for us to be able to expand our reach to the European cycling community.”
