Santa Cruz Free Agents Race Sea Otter

Avril 20 — 2015 | Laguna Seca, CA

Santa Cruz had seven different Free Agents and other riders racing in the Pro Downhill and the Pro Dual Slalom at Sea Otter this past weekend. Aaron Gwin won the men's DH on a dry, dusty, and fast course. It was a tight race, too — after Gwin and second-placed Logan Binggelli, only ten seconds separated 3rd place and 76th place. The Dual Slalom was the crowd-pleaser we've come to expect, with Martin Maes edging out Mitch Ropelato for the win, and Santa Cruz rider Sean Bell winning the under-18 Pro Men race. Read on for full results and photos from the weekend!
