Registration has filled for first-ever enduro event at Sea Otter

KENT, Wash. (Mar. 26, 2014)– Lapierre is the official host of the first-ever SRAM Enduro race at the 2014 Subaru Sea Otter Classic, powered by SRAM. The Sea Otter Classic Enduro takes place on Friday, April 11 starting mid afternoon and running into the evening.

At the end of the day the racer with the fastest time combined for all three stages will stand alone on the podium. Registration has already filled with 200 riders set to compete.

“Lapierre is thrilled to host inaugural Sea Otter SRAM Enduro,” said Lapierre North America Director of Marketing, Steve Chapin. “We’ll have eight racers on Lapierre Zesty’s and Spicy’s, ripping it up on our one of a kind e:i shock. It’s going to be a great event.”
