The Sea Otter Classic takes place in Monterey, California each year. This year is the 15th year of operation. There are MTB races and road races - something for everyone, according to the organisers “The Sea Otter Classic offers more to all types of cyclists, and their fans, than does any other cycling event,” says Frank Yohannan, President and CEO of Sea Otter Classic. “We’re very proud of the loyal following we’ve developed over the past 15 years and will work hard to meet the expectations of the next generation of Sea Otter athletes.” There is also a tradeshow, with opportunities to buy kit and bikes and plenty of competition for spectators to watch. 

According to the race organisers, the on-form rider for the women’s race is Christine Thorburn (Menlo Park, CA), who will be hard to beat on the hilly Sea Otter courses, having shown excellent form at the Redlands Classic. With the tough climbs that characterize road racing at the Sea Otter Classic, the diminutive Thorburn will be at a distinct advantage, especially given that the 2004 champion, Lyne Bessette, has opted to ride Sea Otter’s Pro/Elite MTB Stage Race this year, rather than defend her title.

The women's race consists a prologue time trial on Thursday and then 2 road stages, one each on Saturday and Sunday

Race Programme - UCI women's road race

LAGUNA SECA PROLOGUE Thursday, April 14, 2005   2:00 pm

A 3km course with the start at the top of the corkscrew on Laguna Seca raceway. Racers will finish at the Main Stage Start/Finish gantry on Laguna Seca raceway.

STAGE ONE: LAGUNA SECA CIRCUIT RACE Friday, April 15, 2005  1:15 pm, 38 miles/17 laps

Using the Laguna Seca Raceway, riders will experience a closed course of 2.25 miles with 300 ft. of climbing per lap. Sea Otter Classic’s Main Start/Finish will be utilized for this event.

STAGE TWO: FORT ORD ROAD RACE Saturday, April 16, 2005    11:30 am /84 miles with 7 laps of Fort Ord loop and 1.5 finish laps on Laguna Seca Raceway

NEW COURSE - ANNOUNCED APRIL 6, 2005
From the organisers - Please note an important change to the course of Stage 2 of this year's race. The road race stage will be moved to a fully-closed 10-mile loop in Fort Ord. Each lap includes 930 feet of climbing, including many short climbs, descents and corners. Racing will be very spirited and strategic on the Fort Ord course as riders will no longer be neutralized by the stiff Salinas Valley headwinds experienced the previous two years.
