Oakley Jupiter Award

Jupiter is the fifth planet from the Sun and by far the largest. Jupiter is more than twice as massive as all the other planets combined (the mass of Jupiter is 318 times that of Earth)(nineplanets.org) . Unnoticed, but Super Awestriking…. we’re looking for the rider, who most resembles Jupiter. Maybe a sleeper, or maybe just the largest and brightest of the OTH Racers.

This year Oakley introduces the Oakley Jupiter Award. The Jupiter Award will go to a rider that INSPIRES US ALL, among the Over the Hump Community. It’s a  perennial (actually awarded two times a year) to riders at Over the Hump. It’s a huge honor to be handed the Award.  Two times a season a riders’ name will be added to the trophy, they’ll carry it home until it returns to be set in the hands of the next racer elected to be honored as the Oakley Jupiter Award recipient.

The Jupiter Award goes to Over the Hump’s MVR (Most Valuable Rider)! It’s not the fastest pro, or the most accomplished sport, or the winner of the Single Speed Class presented by F&M Bank (our latests addition).  It’s not male, or female, or youth specific.  It’s an honor.

So give us your best stories, nominate the rider who is most deserving;  maybe it’s a comeback from injury, a rise in ability, an effort that benefits the OTH community, a gift or donation that changed the way someone was able to participate, or even live better.

It’s your job to nominate, and we’ll announce the inaugural Oakley Jupiter Award Winner after the 1st half of the season at Over the Hump Race #6 on June 28, 2011.

Tell us the OTHer’s name and story. To submit your nomination to jupiter@overthehumpseries.com
