One family raced, even mom and dad.  5 people, 3 under 13 years old.  One of the cool things about Oer the Hump is that a 9 year old, Danielle Dulac, can race on the same course, at the same time, as our 1st Place Women’s Expert Tonya Bray, and 1st Place Men’s Expert Sid › Read more

David wrote a plug › Read more
Tuesday September 15th's race was amazing to be a part of. We couldn't have done it without all the support from volunteers, sponsors, and of course the racers.

Tonya Bray, http://mtbchick.com , 1st place winner of the Women’s Expert category, just dropped an article online at Mountain Bike Action. Tonya writes, “…there is nothing quite like getting dirty with a short mountain bike race in the middle of the week to remove the edge of daily life.  So it was with much excitement › Read more
Chris Williams from Rock N Road and www.CeeDubb.com, originally shot the video of the course with Matt leading the way.  That was “just OK”, great video by Chris, but who wanted to see Matt ride (except Charity, Matt’s wife). So, fortunately, Chris caught the real/live August 26 race on a friend’s , but here’s the › Read more
We have met quite a few people who drove into Irvine Lake from some serious distance. Apparently, the “close and accessible”, designed to hit Orange County workers and residents has creeped out as far as Santa Barbara, Redlands, San Diego, Burbank, Riverside, and beyond.  “There must be a good reason,” I thought. Jeff Stanners from › Read more
We've received hundreds of emails, both encouraging the midweek race idea and telling us what was a "killer component of the race experience" along with the "great job...but, if you could fix this I'd be stoked" emails. No nasty ones, and we appreciate the grace, as it was our first race at our Irvine Lake course. However the constructive comments have led to some marked improvements; here are 3 › Read more
Here is a fun take on the race from David Whiting, Orange County Register Outdoors columnist. If you see some guy trying to pedal through the course with no seat at the next race... yell hello! › Read more
