For the fourth year in a row, the SACA Sports Council on Palmer’s West campus was the primary sports care provider at the Sea Otter Classic, April 6-9, in Monterey, Calif. The four-day event features more than 10,000 professional, elite and amateur riders who compete in road, downhill, cross-country and slalom races.

Among the most common injuries cared for in the Sports Council tent were acromioclavicular joint separation on the top of the shoulder and road rash from minor accidents. Two days of rain also made riders look like they were competing in another cycling event for which the Sports Council delivered care in June, the Muddy Buddy.
