    Why is Short Track only for Pros?

    Does anyone know why only Pros are allowed to do the Short Track race this year? I was thinking about entering it for the first time as Cat 3.

    STXC stuff explained

    This is a pasted reply from the Sea Otter Classic fanpage on Facebook. If you want to check it out, head HERE: http://www.facebook.com/TheSeaOtterClassic - you'll have to scroll down a bit.

    We DID NOT offer AMATEUR short track last year. We had done so for 8 years – and averaged 5-10 racers in each group. It was a stretch to justify the outlay of medical folks, staff and officials with those numbers.

    What we DID do was to expand our Kids Races instead to the Short Track and we averaged 25-20 kids per race. We do the little kids in the Kids Zone and the 10-12 year olds on the PRO STXC – the race with the pros – like with the National Series – and it is awesome.

    Expanded Kid’s Races rule...
