HHH: Wrap Up

Hotter N' Hell officially wrapped up on Sunday with multiple criterium race near downtown Wichita Falls Multi-Purpose Event Center. While this was the 34th annual HHH Sunday marked only the 24th anniversary of the criterium race. While the races are not nearly as long as the 100 miles that riders took part on Saturday there were hundreds of bikers taking place on Sundays short loop criterium races.

"They will do anywhere from 30 minutes to 75 minutes of racing today," said Charlie Zamastil HHH race Director.

The races took place on a course through downtown that was 8/10ths of a mile long. Riders bike around the course as officials find out average lap times then determine how many minutes it will take them to do eight laps. HHH Officals post that for riders and then the real race begins with eight laps to go.

"My name is Billy Flores and I am from Austin, Texas, but I am a college student at Texas State University," said Flores.

Flores was one of the many racers who finished at the top of his category in the Mens Category 4 Race.

"I was pre-riding the course I was just looking to see if there was any dangerous parts of the course or anything and I did not find a single one I mean this race has surpassed all expectations and other races should look at what these guys are doing and potentially do that as well," said Flores.

The criteriums racers were open to riders as young as ten and as old as 50 for both male and female. The Wichita Falls Special Olympics also were able to take part with their own separate races.
