At Over The Edge we love to have parties to bring our people together to celebrate how awesome mountain biking is. This year we hosted our first ever “Pre-Otter” event the day before Sea Otter. The event was held at Solosjuntos, Mike Ferrentino and Kelley Richardson’s property, about an hour from Laguna Seca. Invitations were sent out late and attendance was small, however we assembled a perfect group of our friends for the first year.
John brought his van and set up a sweet sound system, and after Troy fired up the grill Maurice Tierney and Mike Ferrentino took turns manning the grill. Conversation among friends lasted well into the evening as temperatures dropped and people gathered around the fire. While you probably won’t see any big stories about this event in the real world media, the mountain bike media were well represented including friends from Dirt Rag, Freehub and Bike magazine.
The event was a lot of fun and we’re planning on making it an annual tradition. The property has several miles of mountain bike trails so plan on bringing your bike next year for some awesome fun!
