Introduction Thank you for your interest in Joining the OTHG!
Anyone over the age of 30 is welcome to join the Club.
Only Club members or invited guests can race with the gang.
Please read the FAQs for answers to common questions.
Why Join the OTHG?
There are many reasons to join the Valley OTHG.
Fair racing with all new riders racing two “evaluation races” to insure they are placed in the proper class as judged by multiple race committee members. No trophies for the first two races but 15 points will be given for each race.
Race in the Following age groups +30/+38/+45/+52/+58/+65/Woman’s. Class is set by ability: Real Beginner – Novice – Intermediate – Expert – Master
You may join the class (age) that you will turn during the year. For example, if you will turn 30 in December of the current year, you may join the OTHG as a 30 yr old on January 1 of the current year. If you will turn 45 in June of the current year, you may sign up on January 1 of the current year in the 45 class, etc.
Shorter race days. We will work hard to schedule as many gang only races as possible. We also will schedule our races with local promoters so you do not have to choose between an OTHG race or a CMA event as an example. You can race your CMA class and then your OTHG class on the same day
If you have a child that wants to race but does not want to race the larger local events. We will have support classes for your kids. Usually Mini/Female/250/450 classes are used. You can also race the support gates as your second class.
You will receive discounts with Chapter supporters with your OTHG Card.
We schedule several events with the other OTHG Chapters annually. More venues; more competition
We have a 5 Race National Series that includes Tracks like Oatfield, Glen Helen,Tulare Cycle Park, Fernley Nevada and Hollister Hills.
