“Young riders are the future of American bike racing,” said VeloNews Editor-in-Chief Fred Dreier. “Our industry understands that getting more kids on bikes means a healthier sport. Sea Otter one of the most fun cycling weekends in America and I couldn’t be more pleased to partner with such a great supporter of youth cycling.”
Spencer Powlison, News Director for VeloNews.com, commented, “Once you see the pack of Little Bellas riding around Laguna Seca or all of the NICA kids in their school jerseys, you realize that this phenomenon of youth participation is well-supported and growing. It inspires me personally and is a great reminder of why we all love riding. It’s just plain fun.”
Frank Yohannan, co-founder of Sea Otter, said, “VeloNews has been a champion of American bike racing for over 45 years and no race is complete without VeloNews in the mix. We’re pleased to have Fred, Spencer, and the team covering our race and encouraging youth to take up the sport.”
