    XC Neutral Water Stations?

    This year will be my first Sea Otter XC race. 24 miles seams like a stretch for 2 water bottles (especially if it's hot that day). I searched the forum for info on neutral water stations but I couldn't get a handle on what to expect. I can't find any info concerning rider support on the official Sea Otter site. What should I plan? Thanks my MTBR friends.
    Consciousness, that annoying time between bike rides.

    I know there was at least one water station last year, maybe two.

    Forecast for Monterey on Apr 9 shows cloudy with a high of 66. I wouldn't expect it to vary much from that by Sunday.
    Atomic batteries to power...turbines to speed...

    Looking at the map they have two. One at the usual place, Skyline Canyon and trail 42. The other is new, it's at the end of trial 41. In the past they've had water, hydration drink and gels. This is one of the few races I use a Camelbak, I like to be self sufficient and don't want to rely on people I don't know for water. Also, I don't want to risk losing a water bottle. The last couple years there have been a ton of water bottles laying around on the first descent.
