Jill Kinter Wins Double Gold at Sea Otter

The 2012 Sea Otter Classic was a whirlwind of activity but the highlight of the four day event was definitely from none other that Team Norco International’s Jill Kintner. After taking the win from Melissa Buhl in the Slalom Jill moved on to repeat the result in the DH. With a 1 second lead over Melissa and an 8 second lead over Mahon, Jill took the win in definitive style.

Jill opted to ride her Norco Sight over her Aurum for this track. The pedaling sections and lack of technical aspects allowed for the 140mm travel bike to shine. Congratulations to Jill on two big early season victories.
