2014 Wednesdays at Wakefield Race #3

Wednesday night was the third race of the 2014 Wednesdays at Wakefield Race Series p/b Potomac Velo Club.

It was shaping up to be quite the evening for racing with the heat index hovering around 108 degrees at 5p and a line of thunderstorms threatening to approach from the North and West. But for the third week in a row, Mother Nature cooperated as the storms dissipated and the rain held off until later in the night.

Wicked Wash Racing had a strong team showing with 10 riders racing SS Male, Masters 35+ Open, Masters 45+ Open, Expert Male, Expert Female, Sport Male, and Sport Female finishing with two 1st place podiums, one 2nd place podium, one 3rd place podium, one top five, and three top tens.

Racing SS Male: Marco Demartin attacked early and Brad Hawk (The Bike Lane) chased for the entire race as Marco took the 1st place podium finish with Brad a mere 7 seconds behind for 2nd place. After his excused absence last week for attending the USA Cycling Junior Development Camp, Noah Flaxman finished with another great race in 8th place. Tom Howe finished in 9th place. Both Noah and Tom improved on their previous race times with strong top ten finishes.

Racing Masters 35+: Scott Person DNF’d with a mechanical.

Racing Masters 45+: John Kromis with a top five 5th place finish as he is rounding back in form just in time for ORAMM. Ben Teller (NCVC) with the 1st place podium finish for the third week in a row.

Racing Expert Male: Chris Dobroth with a 2nd place podium finish as he continues to get stronger and faster every week. Chris Dell with a top ten 7th place finish. Dylan Johnson (Scott Pro Mountain Bike Team) took the first place podium finish.

Racing Expert Female: Laurie Johnson with a first place podium finish. Laurie is a racing machine!
