Sea Otter Europe - A New Cycling Festival for 2017


The Sea Otter Classic announced today it is supporting the Sea Otter Europe / Costa Brava - Girona Bike Show. GiOutdoor, a preeminent European sports promotion company, will host the festival in beautiful Girona, Spain on June 3-4, 2017.  

Cyclists who attend Sea Otter Europe can expect to see many of the same events and activities that they have grown to love at the Sea Otter Classic in Monterey, CA. Mountain bike racing, dual slalom, pump track, children's activities and the expansive product exposition will be just some of the highlights of this European bicycle festival.

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. For Sea Otter Europe / Costa Brava - Girona Bike Show, GiOutdoor will collaborate with Ocisport Outdoor Experiences, organizers of UCI World Championships and World Cups, Volcat, BUFF Epic Trail, and many other events.

"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."
