A New Contest with new rules and BIG PRIZES!
Normally, we’d now ask you to submit another photo for next week’s contest and, yes, we are doing that this time around, but with some restrictions. The rules are slightly different this time around, so be sure to read them carefully before submitting entries. To start, the contest is limited to photos taken at the 2006 Sea Otter Classic and submitted before April 11.

Based around the Laguna Seca Recreation Area just inland of Monterey, California, the Sea Otter Classic is a cycling festival like no other. Every year, for four days, tens of thousands of bike enthusiasts converge on the green rolling hills like a massing two-wheeled army. Tattooed men on burly downhill bikes wait patiently behind little girls on pink bikes with training wheels in the numerous food vendor queues. Cross-country riders who have never pinned on a number chat with roadies who live for competition. Professional stunt riders navigate four-inch-wide planks forty feet above the heads of cheering spectators. And young BMX riders practice their skills near the start/finish line where professional riders come thundering past dozens of times during the pro circuit race. Even the youngest Sea Otter fans get into the action at the Kid’s Carnival and other events designed specifically for budding cyclists.

You can find many of these elements scattered around the United States, but finding them all in one place requires a trip to the Sea Otter Classic.

We will award three prizes for this special contest:Best MTB photo: A Garmin Edge 205 – GPS-enabled personal trainer and cycle computerBest Road photo: Garmin Edge 205 – GPS-enabled personal trainer and cycle computerBest of Show Photo: Palm Treo Phone
