June 25 Photos From PLS Photography

PLS Photography caught all the action at Irvine Lake on Tuesday night, June 25.

Surf City Cyclery was out in force in their very visable Orange Surf City Cyclery / OTH shirts, manning the course marshal role and Han Rey was onsite to greet the racers and share his passion for worldwide distribution to give bikes to the needy, through his Charity Wheels 4 Life.

In additional prize schwag, Two Wheels One Planet+ThinkASG put together a raffle for an IPAD to fund Pediatric Cancer Research Foundation, which continues into the second half of the season with a Giant bike raffle for race 12 drawing.

SRAM sent Todd DeRose home with with a SID 29″ Rockshox fork, which he now has the foundation to build the rest of his 29er around.

All-in-All June 25 was a great way to end the 1st half of Over the Hump 2013; we can’t wait to see you on Tuesday, July 25…after our 3 week break from racing. Rest up and enjoy your vacations.

Later this week you can buy your photos at this link http://www.plsphotography.com/Sports2013/Over-The-Hump-2013

    this week was fun as usual, but it seemed to many of us in the b3 class that the end finishing results did not reflect the truth. a good handful of us finished well back of our average spot. When you pass the same guy 2 times you start to wonder if the heat is getting to you or does that guy know that if you take the sport class cut off at the east end of the track you can make up time. If there is going to be alternate routes we must all be sure to stay on the correct one. I no that it is easy to just follow the pack, but we are not all in the same class and you have to preride and no where your turn is. the alternate routes are good to space out the riders but I think us beginners need more help staying on course. I want to keep it fun, but was a little frustrated on Tuesday.

    Steve, interesting feedback, thank you. Yes, it is important people watch the signs, and we’ll work on improving notice, you don’t need to preride in order to know the course, but you do need to pay attention.

    That said, we’re looking at lap times this week and if there is inconsistencies, the results will be corrected. We’ve had similar feedback, some of intentional cutting as well. Since we run a community event, we expect (same as a friendly round of golf) people are riding with sportsmanship and within the guidelines. Sad, but true, there’s always going to be some people who buck the system so they can win important life goals, like an OTH pint glass.

    See you on the 23rd, your comments are heard.
