Nukeproof’s Californian Road Trip with Elliott Heap and Kelan Grant

by 0

If you’ve ever wondered what it might be like to make the trip out to Sea Otter, this video does a pretty good job of showing how much fun you might have. As well as the Sea Otter event itself, there’s plenty of tourist stuff to do in the area – so much of it that you’ll barely scratch the surface on a single trip.

That sea is FREEZING!

This video follows Nukeproof’s Elliott Heap and Kelan Grant around their California trip, and if you enjoy the simple curiosities of a foreign supermarket, giant American cars, or just the way that everything is familiar but strangely different, then you’ll probably enjoy this.

It may surprise you how steep the famous dual slalom track is.
Looks warm, but you can’t see the cold wind.
All the dust is a fun novelty until the wind gets hold of it in the expo area.

Ever wanted to session the Corkscrew at Laguna Seca Race Track on a 20” kids bike? Me neither, until now… In the first overseas adventure of the year for the new Nukeproof-Sram Factory Racing, Nukeproof wanted to give Kelan Grant & Elliott Heap the whole USA experience whilst out at Sea Otter Classic.

Living the dream of traveling the world to race bikes. Our athletes are very privileged to travel to some incredible locations, but often the reality is traveling from pit to pit and not experiencing some of these locations to the full (not a bad thing, just always nice to experience a little culture when in Rome and all that).

To celebrate the launch of the team Nukeproof laid on a trip to remember, a full USA experience in 10 days; Racing at Sea Otter, riding with Santa Cruz royalty Ryan “R-Dog” Howard, sunset strolls on the beach, San Francisco by Scooter, and a visit to Alcatraz. Safe to say the team enjoyed the trip away, America, you’ beauty.
