    SS MTB this year or only CX?

    I'm looking to ride SS MTB this year but I don't see a specific category in the mountain bike section. Am I forced to ride the cross event? I'd like to ride longer than 30 minutes... I could always enter in cross country, but I'd like to be among friends, n'amsayin?

    I'd imagine there will be a good amount of SS in the XC race, but you are correct in that there doesnt appear to be a specific category for it.

    There are cat 1 and cat 2 singlespeed groups for the XC race. See here under cat 1 and cat 2:
    Subaru Sea Otter Classic - April 10-13, 2014 | Athlete Guide | Age Group Info

    Yeah there is always SS MTB categories at Sea Otter. They are listed in the results from past years, on the registration page etc. Both Cat 1 and Cat 2 SS groups are very competitive.


    The Cat1 group used to be called Pro/Cat1 SS but last year they changed it to just Cat 1. Even with that it was won by a Pro and there were other Pro's mixed into the field. Very fast. (Which is why i generally still call it Pro/Cat1!)

    Yeah, I'll say it's competitive. I'm usually a mid-pack kinda rider, but I always seem to come in the bottom 10% in Sea Otter CAT2 SS.

    Meh, I still have a blast. That's why I do it.
