Our story
has just begun...

Sea Otter Classic
April 2019 / Monterey, California (USA)
April in sunny California (USA) usually marks the beginning of a new bike season, with Sea Otter Classic being the first festival to take place in 2019. Almost every brand in the industry is there to show up with their latest products and ideas, which makes this event a perfect witness of what's coming up in the following months.
This edition was going to be an exceptional one for Forestal, as it was going to be its first-ever time at Sea Otter.

It's still soon for us to be there as an exhibitor, but we wanted to see what would happen when we appeared at the show with our very-first prototype and Cédric Gracia announcing his compromise with us.

We walked through the event, just two Forestal Team members, Cédric, and an enduro pedal-assisted, pixel vinyl-covered aluminium prototype. Not even five minutes into the show, and we were already having our first big interviews! Everybody, press, riders, brands and friends came to us to talk about what we are doing, who are were; all we could say was
"We are Forestal, and our story has just begun!"
— Rafael Gil-Pérez Redondo, Chief Marketing Officer (CMO)
Stoked, that's the word to describe how we felt. Who could imagine such a reaction? This really has cheered us up and motivates to keep working as hard as we are doing to be ready as soon as possible.

We are coming, so stay tuned!
