|Tom Hackleman is State Champion, again! - Thursday, August 07, 2014|

|OTB Time Trialers Showing Their Strength! - Monday, April 28, 2014|
This past weekend Beth Graff headed south to the Eugene Or area to take part in the "As the Raven Flies Only Longer" time trial. Beth raced the womens 40+ category and took first place! This was an up and down course over 25+ miles in length. Beth is heading south again on Tuesday to Coburn for another TT. Good luck Beth!
Steve Matson and Jeff Patterson also did some TT'ing in Oregon over the weekend on the tandem. They were participating in the Deschutes River Valley TT Omnium. This was a 3 stage event over some difficult terrain. Lots of hills and wind made for a great challenge. The not only took first place in the overall but they won Stage 1 and Stage 3 to boot! Great job fellas.
What a great weekend for OTB Racing. One State Champ and 2 first place finishes to go along with all the other strong riding by the team. Lets keep it rollin".

|Sorry Dr. Kern! - Saturday, April 26, 2014|
It was brought to our attention that one of our sponsors was missing from our website. We would like to send a heartfelt apology to Dr. Kern, Family Dentistry, for missing this. Dr. Kern has always been very supportive of OTB and we feel horrible that his logo was missed.
