Fat bikes aren't just for snow anymore. Sick of slogging through the Capitol Forest mud this past winter our stalwart mechanic Steve took the plunge and started building up a Norco Bigfoot. Weighing in at 26.6LBS with pedals this bike is nothing like the stock build that it started out as. Jump past the break for a full bike check.
Well Sea Otter is a wrap. Here is another installment of "What could Cam find with out a press pass!". It turns out its a lot harder to roll through the pits on the weekend and talk to the techs if you don't have the official press lanyard. Take your time and scroll through, I think you'll find stuff you'll like. I may have even gotten the exclusive on one of the pieces there. Next year the press pass will happen.
Dual Slalom never fails to excite. EVER. With some of the crowd favorites getting knocked out early it was definitely a regime change. Martin Maes, first year pro managed to take the top spot on the podium while expected contenders such as Luca Shaw, Kyle Strait, and Brian Lopes (never count lopes out on slalom) all got knock out early. Here a handful of my favorite shots for the event.
Two down and two to go. We spent a day wandering the pits trying to find all of the goodies to bring to show. Scroll through the gallery to see what we thought were some of coolest products on display today. Tune in tomorrow for more toys, as well as some Dual Slalom action.
For the first day of Sea Otter we didn't actually make it too Sea Otter. We probably could have, but after fifteen hours of driving its always nice to take a decompress day before getting down to Buissiness. So instead we took the day to explore some of the Santa Cruz single track, before wrapping up with some beach time and BBQ. Event coverage starts tomorrow, until then heres some pictures of beach rut bangers.
