Race 7 Recap, Photos, Mazda’s Fastest Lap and Primes

OTH # 7 is better than Disney’s Big Thunder… what can beat summer fun on two wheels? We were so pumped to hang out with our MTB Family one more time this week.

Smiles and friends were everywhere as we gathered again this Tuesday.  After a 4 week break, Race #7  is in the books.  Over 100 little ones took to the course to put their heart into turning the pedals and had the time of their lives.

After the move ups over the break, the Beginners and Intermediates kept to the short course, while Sport – Elite raced the fire road to single track.

The biggest changes this week, were the addition of the Big Bike Class (read more here) along with the podiums now starting at Intermediate…in order to make more room for the beginners to join the fun weekly.

Mazda’s Fastest Lap winners this week were from the the Junior A catagories, and this week saw the introduction of primes (Prize lap).

Our Featured Shop: Two Wheels One Planet

Thanks to Two Wheels One Planet for joining the fun, as our featured shop; delivering great giveaways and awesome volunteers .

Primes (Prize Lap) introduced this week for the first time at OTH!  Translation: Win Free Stuff for fastest 1st Lap Each Week

If you’ve ever been to a crit race, then you probably know what a prime is.  If not, never fear, here is the skinny.

Primes are short for premiums.  Basically, you can win free stuff. This week, we were giving away Red Monkey Grips.

Each week, the first person across the finish line for each class will win a premium prize at the end of the race.

This does a couple of cool things for the racer:

  1. If you aren’t super fast for the whole race, but can fly for the first lap, it gives you a realistic chance to win something awesome.
  2. It can totally change how the race feels for everyone.

Stay tuned next week for more primes.

Sport – Elite got to Race the warmish “Adrenaline Elevator” Fire Road Climb and single track descent.

The Sport – Elite classes had a chance to hit the long climb on the fire road, and rip single track fun slide down.

Mazda’s Fastest Lap Winners

Congrats to the winners of the Mazda fastest lap this week! This week’s winners will want to visit the Mazda booth next week for swag bag.

Here’s this week’s winners:

We’ll be picking 2-3 new categories each week to be the Mazda fastest lap in their category!  Stay tuned and keep pedaling!
