Dylan Takes His Second Win of the Season

Race: Pocahontas Mountain Bike Race
Date: April 7, 2013
Riders: Dylan Johnson (1st, Pro/Open Category)
Conditions: Fast, warm and dry

Last weekend, Dylan picked up a fine win at the Virginia Mountain Bike Series event outside Richmond, VA, at Pocahontas State Park (site of the well attended MonsterCross event earlier this season).

On a twisty and fast course with limited room for passing, Dylan battled with pro Matt Bailey (Trek) for the lead.

On the second of two laps, Dylan attacked on a short uphill, got a gap and pushed it to the finish to finish in first by more than a minute.

Results are available here.

Many of the of the team were racing on the road last weekend to get some early season fitness, with Nick taking 3rd at the Navy Yard Crit in Philly, Zack finishing 9th in a road race in PA and Jeff rolling through the on the Jefferson Cup road race in Charlottesville (allergies and a late night of dancing at a wedding the night before combined for a pack finish).

The team is headed in multiple directions this weekend.  Jeff is headed to the 13 hour Baker's Dozen Relay in Leesburg, VA, Zack is heading south to the Dragon's Tale in southern VA, you might see Jay and Cam at the Michaux Endurance races in PA, and others are putting the finishing touches on pre-season prep.

Hope to see you out on the trails!
