The Over The Hump Race Series is a great mountain bike race based out of Irvine Lake here in beautiful Southern California. If you live here and ride mountain bikes, you owe it to yourself to check out an event and get your feet wet racing. Its a great atmosphere where friendship and the love of riding take precedence over competition. You have your pro and expert riders who come out to win but the majority and core group are enthusiasts who use riding as an escape from the stresses of the daily grind.

I hadn’t shot a OTH race since 2011 so it was nice to be back to shoot a race, and see just how far along the series has grown. Below are some of my favorite images from the night, you can see a full gallery of photos HERE. Enjoy!

My son Lucas raced the tykes race and had a great time.

Sometimes you’ll find yourself shooting the same thing all the time, so make sure to change things up and go outside the box.






A small patch of water created a cool reflection of the riders as they went by.
