Race #12 Recap – Last Race 2016


Well folks, this is it for the 2016 season and we are all still buzzing with excitement from the closing ceremonies at OTH.  This season was the first season including the New Intermediate Class and it was a HUGE HIT!  Thank you to everyone for making this year the best Over the Hump series yet!!

Featured Shop this Week – The Path Bike Shop

The Path brought a bit of Hawaiian flair to race #12 this week and made sure plenty of people got leied.  You know, the floral Hawaiian necklace.  Thanks to all the people from The Path and all their hard work this week!



Matt and John had a special presentation for racers that have been with us from the very first Over the Hump Race.

Last Race 2016

OTH Ambassador Awards

This year OTH and Troy Lee Designs gave away two custom painted helmets to a male and female cyclist that best embodies what it means to be an OTH Ambassador.  Congratulations to Leslie Williams (3rd place Elite Women) and Jeff Laubshcer (3rd Place Clydesdales) for their dedication to the sport of cycling and for being awesome!
