ONE LAP: Mick Hannah and Evan Turpen, Sea Otter DH 2013 5

Take a hot, dusty lap down the 2013 Sea Otter DH track with Mick Hannah and Evan Turpen. Consider Sea Otter to be a chess game, where your equipment choice is just as important as your line choice. Big wheels, little wheels? Big bike, little bike? We'll see on Sunday.

    I have a crossish bike and a DH bike and have ridden the course. I'd much rather have the DH, or at least the 6x6.
