July 24 Race Recap

Last night, July 24, 2012 is a night we’ll all remember.

The first race back after 4 weeks off, some of our riders still on vacation, and the water at an all-time Irvine Lake low made from some fun shenanigans . We even sampled a new low-water line track during the preride that didn’t quite work the way we dreamed it up. (Thanks to the riders who served as fresh guinea pigs for our experiment, and gave us some good feedback pre-start).

George Logan went home with a SRAM 1070 chain and cassette from the prerace prize drawing. AWESOME gear is going out weekly courtesy of SRAM.

The kids were back in action on the kid’s race.

AS you know, little things make OTH what it is. What’s not been so little, is the way Estate Services continues to beef up the sound system to accommodate our needs for growing riders and more volume, in the right places. Bow added a new amp to the set up for the second half of the season. (Yes, this is a shameless plug for Bow and the cats at Estate Services-without their help we’d be talking at you from a bullhorn and you’d hear nothing).

The race was awesome; good rivalries and points battles that you can check out at the results page.

The biggest news of the night was Crankbrothers presence. Crankbrothers pulled out all of the stops, and rolled to Irvine Lake with Race Club 11 pro riders Chloe Woodruff and Judy Freeman who hosted a pre-ride before the race. Then as riders (kids and adults alike) poured off the course they had a treat waiting for them, witht crankbrothers dragrace fest. Matt and John even posted a quick result grudge match on the dragrace strip, where even with quasi rally socks and cap, Matt pulled through the finish line 4 bike lengths (the bike was 2 feet long) behind John. OUCH!!!!

Thanks for coming back and joining us for the second half of the season, it’s been a blast and we loved being back at the HUMP.

Good luck to all you racers who are chasing that ever elusive SPY Leader’s Jersey.
