One of the biggest U.S. cycling festivals is planning to come to Girona, Spain next June
MONTEREY, Calif. — Organizers of the Sea Otter Classic are planning an event in Girona, Spain, for next June, in partnership with iOutdoor, a European sports promotion company.
The Sea Otter Europe / Costa Brava - Girona Bike Show will be June 3-4.
Organizers said the event will include many of the same elements as the Sea Otter Classic, including mountain bike racing, dual slalom, pump track, children's activities and a product expo.
GiOutdoor organizes the Transpyr Coast to Coast mountain bike event. 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."
