Anyone familiar with the new route for the Sea Otter RR?

I am trying to figure out gearing....does anyone know how the climbs this year will compare to previous?
Thanks.

Yes, apparently people complained that the race was too hard and that only strong, fit riders were winning the race.



I disdain most if not all things Sea Slaughter at this point, based on personal experience.

I had two bouts of fouled up scoring, one bout of unanswered Emails regarding a refund, and was left to bleed into my shoes for 45 minutes until I finally rode my broken frame down to first aid.

I think I remember that story from last year. How awful. That's pretty serious when they can't get people off the road like that.


Much less serious (but still annoying) is the really bad parking in what I heard was a muddy field that was far from the S/F and reg. areas.

Well, they had to let the mountain bikers park in the paved lot so they wouldn't get their tires dirty.

So that's why we were in the mud.

I'm skipping the road race this year, but doing the 30+ circuit race on Friday and the NRC Circuit race on Saturday.

I'll get to do that little 200 ft circuit climb about 15 times on Friday and 31 times on Saturday!
