The Year of the “Story”

Have you heard the Over the Hump Mountain Bike Race Story?

Of course you have, you’re in the middle of writing it. Everyday someone puts their leg over the bike, and heads to Castaic Lake, or Irvine Lake, trains or even visits as a part of a races “pit crew” they are writing the Over the Hump Story.

Throughout this season, we’re going to be introducing you to the people who make Over the Hump, the amazing, vibrant, and exciting community that it is.  Over the Hump is people, not a race. It’s a community, not a racer, a team.  No…we have observe it turn into a family, from the first time you rolled under the start banner, and put rubber to dirt (and asphalt).  Over the Hump, is our Tuesday night home, and we’re glad we get to share the backyard with so many amazing people.

In this episode, Matt shares his story, and an overview of where Over the Hump came from.  Now you get to help us write the story of where it’s going.

This is your Race, this is your Community, this is your Family. We’re just glad to be a part of it. Thanks for including us in the journey.
