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.
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.
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.
After shooting the Counting Coup race earlier this year, I made it a personal goal to cover more mountain bike races this year. Due to my schedule covering other events, and more recently my wife and I having our first child, I haven’t been able to shoot any races. Fortunately a new up and coming race series based out of Irvine Lake has their events during the week, so I was able to make it out and cover their second race.
