Sea Otter Classic

Sea Otter has announced a new edition of the popular expo, set for October 1-4, 2021, in Canberra, Australia.

The expo will take place the weekend before the Sea Otter Classic in Monterey, California, and will be the southern hemisphere's first Sea Otter.

Like the other Sea Otters, Sea Otter Australia will include all manner of racing, sneak peaks at new products, riding exhibitions, and more. Sea Otter Australia emphasizes a fun atmosphere with music, food, beer, bike demos, and a focus on riding opportunities.

Sea Otter will be partnering with BikeSA, South Australia's cycling body, to host Sea Otter Australia.

bigquotesWe are honoured to be bringing this festival to Australia. It’s time that bicycle riders across the Australasian region have the opportunity to experience a totally new cycling festival experience. One that celebrates the breadth of our multi-faceted cycling culture – on-road and off-road, for fun, health, recreation, competition and transport. And of course, the latest bikes and bling, fashion, music and brews in our Expo village.BikeSA Chief Executive Officer Christian Haag

 Why hasn't it got a geographically accurate name, like Bin Chicken?

 Funnily enough we don't get too many of those in Canberra because their native wetlands haven't had housing built on them!

 It's a bit weird they're partnering with BikeSA but holding it in Canberra. Good for me though, 10min ride away.

 That had me worried. It was originally scheduled for Stromlo in October 2020 last year, so (fortunately) the venue hasn't changed.

 Forget the snakes and spiders - the politicians in Canberra pose more of a threat!

 Fear not, parliament isn't sitting that week. And anyhow, you'll only bump into them in Kingston or Fyshwick. Stromlo's safe.

 Should prob make it a big 3-part competition between Aus, US and Euro Otter...with the winners receiving a coveted federally-regulated sea otter pelt (?)

 Yes - bin chicken could be appropriate... however they live more close to the coastal areas and are not typically endemic to the A.C.T.

Perhaps it could be renamed to “drop bear classic”

That would do it IMHO

 As long as the event has an epic slalom and a terrible dh track it will be solid
