When I registered for the Sea Otter Classic, I realized that I need to qualify to compete "expert". This changes my race from 40miles (2 laps) to 20 miles (1 lap).
I need to get 2 top 5 finishes in my "sport" category to move up. My new goal is a top 5 finish. If I meet this goal I may add another race before the next Otter so that I can race expert next year.
Did a couple laps in the community forest. It was muddy.
