Heartbreaking News Hits The SoCal Race MTB Community as Over the Hump Cancels 2020 Season


The headline says it all.

After talking with The Tour de France and Olympic committee we, too, have found it in the best interest of athletes and race fans to error on the side of safety and proactive responsibility. OTH 2020 is "officially" cancelled.

All joking aside. We held out as long as possible. Monday we received notice that our race venue at Lakeview Park would not be permitted in July, and the writing is on the wall for the rest of the summer. The coming months will be a no-racing-zone.
 

Thank you for believing in this community and hoping with us that we would be the last dog standing in the event world. We may not have won, but it was a gut wrenching AND fulfilling challenge to go the distance.




Race family, we love you. I've always believed in the mantra , "If I'm not falling down I'm not trying hard enough." Well, we didn't quit, but we certainly have fallen down this year.  Summer just kind of feels fake not being at the race together since May. We're gutted to put it mildly.

Thank you Over the Hump Sponsors. You have been the most supportive group of humans on the planet.

Our OTH Sponsors have affirmed our little race with their wallets and a proactive "we're in this together" vote of conidence. They have invested in 2020 to make sure 2021 gives racers a place to race.  They support our community's riding passion. WOW~ that's pretty humbling.

SO RACERS: please help us say "thank you" to each of our 2020 Over the Hump Sponsors? You can tangibly thank them by shopping with our retailers and buying the brands that make Over the Hump a reality. Our grassroots race series would be a yearly non-event without both you and them. It's an amazing partnership!

Thank you from the bottom of our heart, for the support and love you have shared this year by allowing John, Suzanne, myself and our team to be a part of your 2 wheeled family.  True. We will not be racing. But the trails are open and we will not be silent over the coming months...it's time to regroup, plan for the future and BLOW UP the 2021 race season in a way only this OTH race family can.



Happy Forth of July! Give your closest friends and family physical or virtual hugs for us.

We will race together again in May 2021!

Let's ride!



Matt
