SEA OTTER REPORT
Women's race canceled after deluge
By Steve Medcroft at Laguna Seca raceway in California
The elite women's circuit race at the 2007 Sea Otter classic was stopped mid-race when a broad low layer of dark clouds settled over the venue and began dumping dangerous volumes of water on the world famous Laguna-Seca International raceway. After more than an hour of racing, USA Cycling officials decided that conditions on the track, which included running water and some mud, were unsafe enough to call the race without declaring a winner.
