Mid Atlantic World Championships

Granouge and Wissahickon were contested under some of the worst conditions that I can remember for the races. A nor'easter arrived here Wednesday night and didn't quit until Sunday afternoon. As expected, the races were pretty muddy, especially Granouge.

Valentin Scherz had a great weekend winning the U23 class each day and finishing 3rd overall in the elite race on Saturday behind Trebon and Wicks and 5th on Sunday.

Photos below are courtesy of Anthony Skorochod of Anthony is a great guy who puts in long days at most area races making even the lowliest C-racer look like a pro.

Nikki Thiemann on the REV-50x on her way to 9th at Granouge. She finished 10th the following day at Wissahickon.

Kristine at Granogue on her way to a muddy 20th on her REV-30s. She finished 15th on Sunday. I know some folks like the mud but this does not look fun.

Kristin taking a clean bike from Charles on her way to 11th place. She finished 12th at Wissahickon on Sunday.

Mike Festa rode his REV-50x to 2nd on Saturday and 5th on Sunday in the B-race. To give you an idea of how bad the conditions were, the B-race had 22 DNF's and 28 riders who paid to enter but didn't bother showing up.

David Lowe looking for a clean line on his steath 25x's. I'm pretty sure they were the first one's I built and I never got around to putting decals on them.

Thanks for looking. I'll try and post some pics from Wiss if I have time later this week.
