Tell your friends, tell your foes, settle your scores, and score your tickets to London!
The Brompton World Championship returns to Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca at the Sea Otter Classic this year and promise racers the challenge and excitement of completing eleven miles of its twisting, diving course! That's five laps on a smooth, banked, open road. The first time you shoot down the corkscrew turn at the top of the track, you'll know why this race is so popular! Did we mention the post-race party? More on that below...
The 2018 BWC USA is one of many races at the Sea Otter Classic - the largest cycling festival in the world! Before showing off your slick folding skills and fast-tastic Brompton racing abilities, you'll have the chance to take in the blazing speed of a Pro Road Race and witness the epic skill of the Mountain Bike Dual Slalom. Or, if you're all cycled out, head into town and visit the Monterey Bay Aquarium to watch in awe as eight-foot-long blue fin tuna race laps around the massive ocean tank!
• As ever, the BWC USA is a lead up for Brompton's top cycling event of the year: the BWC Final in London! The fastest male and female riders will win flights and entry to the big event in London. That's a prize even the road racers and mountain bikers envy!
• Great prizes from our sponsors, Brooks of England, Ortlieb and Torch Apparel.
• Everyone wins at the post-race party where we'll have food, beer, and get a little silly before heading to the awards ceremony to celebrate the glory (and glitter) of our new friends from around the country.
• For those of you who have retired from racing, we'll have some fantastic prizes on offer for the fastest fold and best dressed.
