OTH Course Builder Rich Khachadoorian.
We have the best team ever! Rich Khachadoorian has been a part of our Orange County Race Community longer than many OTHers have been mountain biking. He’s been around OTH for all 8 years, and has been creating the best Over the Hump courses this season, as OTH Course Creator AKA and “Man on the Ground”. In 2009, Rich was working at Switchback Cyclery, and found his way to the first two Over the Hump events in August and September.
A legend already, in 2009, his 7 speed Parkpre was doctored by the engineering minded “Richey”, to be an aerodynamic workhorse and a legend in Austin Carroll (film maker’s) mind.
Rich also contributes his skills at RokForm, in Santa Ana, as a product design engineer. We think the Parkpre rigging must have contributed to his fabrication expertise. You be the judge, and let us know what you think.
