Over The Hump Race Series – 6.11.13

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.

My Best Photos of 2010

2010 has been a great year for me and my family. My amazing wife Jamie and I have seen our son turn into a blob of a baby to a growing young man. Its crazy how fast time flies by and watching him grow up and being a parent with Jamie has been the best part of the year. I also turned 30 this year, celebrated our two year wedding anniversary, crashed my quad and broke a vertebrate, went to Kauai, and once again went to a lot of great locations to do what I love, photography.

2010 Over The Hump Series #9

After a week off I was back at it again shooting the Over The Hump Race Series out at Irvine Lake. I missed last weeks race because of Lucas’s first birthday falling on the same day. For that we head up to Long Beach and hung out at the Aquarium of the Pacific. I was excited to get back out there and shoot and see what new sections OTH added to the course.

2010 Over The Hump Race Series #4

“I’m on a boat!”

For this weeks Over The Hump Race at Irvine Lake, CA I decided to mix it up a little and try getting a different perspective and shoot from the water. Matt from OTH was able to get me a small dingy boat to ride around in during the race so I was pretty excited to shoot this week. With the 6pm start times the lighting is great so I knew I’d be able to get some unique shots.

2010 Over The Hump Race Series #1

This past Tuesday marked the beginning of a great local mountain bike series based out of Irvine Lake, CA. Its called Over The Hump Race Series, and its designed to be a fun environment where everyone from beginners to pros can come out and race, and share the experience with the friends and family. What makes it better is that they are held on Tuesday’s at 6pm so it doesn’t interfere with other weekend races, and anyone can come after work and check it out.

2010 Vision Quest / Counting Coup Mountain Bike Race

This time last year marked the first time I photographed a mountain bike race. It was called the Vision Quest / Counting Coup mountain bike race in the Santa Ana Mountains, put on by the Warriors Society. The Vision Quest race is 56 miles long, with 11,000 feet of elevation, with the Counting Coup being 44 miles and 8,000 feet. I had a great time last year shooting all the racers and seeing them on their own personal battle. It’s always inspiring to watch someone push themselves beyond what they think they can do.
