Many of you don't know that I was a cyclist for a little while. With having devoted so much of my time before I graduated from high school to mashing pedals all around the country shooting at mountain bike races brings me back to enjoying time with my cycling family. From seeing old friends racing to hearing people heckle someone through a pump track it just really doesn't get much better.
Last night was Over the Hump's 100th race, that's right, a weekday race that brings in around 600 racers to Irvine Lake for some mid-week mountain bike racing. This race is totally family style, music, beer and plenty of areas on the course to watch people ripping around.
Congrats to the crew that puts on Over the Hump, 100 races is an awesome accomplishment. Enjoy some photos from the first two races at Over the Hump this season.
Over the Hump always offers a great mid-week getaway. Located at Irvine Lake in Orange County it's an easy drive from almost anywhere in Orange County. Bring the whole family as it's a great venue to just hangout and have a good time even if you aren't racing.
Thanks for reading, hope you enjoyed the photos!
