Wednesdays at Wakefield Race #2

Wednesdays at Wakefield is a race series at Wakefield Park in Annandale Virginia and is a great way for mountain bikers in the DC area to satisfy their racing fix mid week. For the second W@W race Scott Pro Mountain Bike team members Dylan Johnson, Zack Morrey, and Mike Joos came ready to throw down with some of the local competition including Ian Spivack and Dave Weaver.

At the start of the race Zack hammered up the start hill to make it first into the single track followed by Dave, Dylan, and Ian making up the lead group with Mike not far behind. Zack lead the entire first lap setting a good pace. At the end of the first lap Dylan crashed in a rocky creak crossing but quickly got up and rejoined the three leaders.


The beginning of the second lap saw some jostling of positions with Dave, Ian, and Dylan passing Zack and then Ian passing Dave to take up the pace making for the group. Later on in the second lap Dylan put in an attack on the open power line section of the course and was able to string out the four man group and break away leaving Ian in second, Dave in third, and Zack in fourth. Meanwhile Mike was creeping through the field making his way up to fifth place by the end of the race making for three Scott Pro Mountain bike riders in the top five!
