Dylan wins the Tour of Tucker County / 2nd at Stagg Creek Shakedown at Poor Farm

This past weekend, Dylan headed to West Virginia for some road racing in the steep and relentless hills of Tucker County on Saturday and turned around and went south to Richmond for the Stagg Creek mtb race.

The Tucker County road race finishes with the 30 minute, 5 mile climb up Sugarlands Road (12% grade for the first mile, then "just" 6-7% grades for the next three miles).  Dylan countered attacks throughout the race and then attacked on his own on the final climb for the win in the Cat 3/4 senior event, finishing first by just about 45 seconds.

Total climbing was around 6,500 feet in 54 miles.

Results are available here.

Dylan - Winning on the final climb of the day
On Sunday, he kept up the speed at the Stagg Creek Shakedown at Poor Farm mtb race on a very hot day, finishing second on a much flatter and faster course than the day before.  Congratulations!

Results are also available here.
