    Sea Otter pics
    After driving for five hours and riding for six hours yesterday I was not too excited about driving another two plus hours to Sea Otter, starting at 5 am this morning under threatening skies. However, the bushing on my shock just went out and I was told that the Fox guys would fix it for free. And they did! The XC photo ops consisted of watching people start and finish on a paved race track, so I only took a few photos of that. However, I did manage to get a bunch of photos of Mountain Cross. The weather was not too bad until about noon, at which time it began to sprinkle a bit. About a half hour later it started raining so I packed up my photo gear and left. More photos posted on my site.

    Thank you Mr. Fox for fixing my shock!

    All my Sea Otter photos ended up being from inside bars or outside free beer tents around the venue..... that's strange.
    Anyone get any pictures of the awesome MC's at the mtbr raffel this year? Those guys rocked.

    Don't sell yourself short, no one has captured that guard rail better than you.

    I went. Couldn't register to race, already full. Lame. Started to rain. went home. does anyone else feel that the sea Otter is only about the $$$. $60 for a camp site (which is a small piece of parking lot)...come on.

    anyways good pics...why don't they move it to May?

    No hit. I have a six photo sequence. The kid in black went way wide around the downed rider and ended up stuck in that dirt pile on the lower left.

    Great pics,Wherewolf! I like how you've captured the impending doom of crashing.
    My favorite bike at Sea Otter was this one:

    The dream vehicle for a trip to Moab...

    Looks like the mountain cross track held up well
    I heard the original site of the Mx ate 4 tractors so they had to move it to this site. When we left on Saturday evening, they were still building it. Great shots...
