May 20 Photos by PLS

May 20 season opener  goes down as another monumental OTH Tuesday. Record racers, record attendance and more than beautiful evening for racing.

Challenges were available in abundance for our course team, race directors and racers. Record crowds, sold out Wahoos, a pinching single track climb on a previous fire road, soft berms, whoops and very little rain this year all added up to some challenging course conditions; in true OTH fashion racers put on a smile, even at the bottleneck at the top of the Orange Climb!

One of our favorite features added this season is the HDX Hydration table top and Snake berm. “Reusable, sustainable, clean” at its core. No trees were killed soley for the purpose of our features, just modified pallets!
