Bike Race redefined by Over the Hump: A place where dirt goggles reveal sparkling eyes, and pearly whites shine in the in afterglow of a community or friends who rode their bikes together, in a “Bike Race”.

Gary Fisher, who Joined JAX Bicycle Center, as the featured shop, summed it up last night. “Anyone who rides a bike is a friend of mine”.

After posting up 62 races, as a race directors, the biggest factor in assessing our success at the end of the night, is the answer to the question, “Did you Have Fun?” We sure did, with record attendance and 100 kids registered to race, another Summer is underway, and we can’t wait to see you next week.
