Volkswagen Sea Otter Classic Wrap Up


Volkswagen Sea Otter Classic 2013It was an action packed weekend at the 2013 Volkswagen Sea Otter Classic  with the Action Wipes team catching up with friends, sponsored athletes and cycling teams.

 One of our first stops was the SRAM Ladies Lounge with 24-hour World Champion mountain biker and Leadville 100 Women’s record holder, Rebecca Rusch, as part of her 2013 Gold Rusch Tour. It was a great event focused on women and included short clinics on cycling tech, gear and fun give-aways. There was also solid one-on-one time with Rusch and other SRAM-sponsored pros including Team Specialized-lululemon’s team owner and manager, Kristy Scrymgeour and riders Ally Stacher and Ina-Yoko Teutenberg, who was looking good, but still feeling some effects of her concussion from her crash at Acht van Dwingeloo.

Action Wipes has been a long-time supporter and provider of body wipes for the Velo Girls and the Savvy Bike coaching program, which has been a tremendous bay area cycling resource focused on introducing girls and women to the sport of recreational cycling and racing. Nice props for Action Wipes from Tiina Aardemae...

On Sunday, family friend Greg D was competing in the Men’s Cat 2 Dual Slalom 50+ category. (Old Guys Rule!). Greg was defending his 2012 win from last year and held his own to finish on the podium again, but alas as 2nd place. However, the race was so close, we’re of the opinion that he should have taken 1st. None-the-less, he is already planning for next year, and we hear that Action Wipes team member Curt Van Inwegen will be racing with him. We’ll be there with our cow bells boys!

(At least Greg didn't go home stinky!)
