A Thrilling Win at All-American Road Race

23 04 2012

On Saturday, the Bike Doctor p/b DigiSource team headed out to Poolesville, MD for the 80 mile All American Road Race. The team was excited to see the race back on the calendar this year and appreciated all of the hard work All American Bicycle Club put into making it a great day of racing.

In the 1/2/3 race, all Bike Doctor hands were most certainly ON DECK, and they had riders in dangerous moves all day long. In the closing stages of the race, Taylor and Custer represented in the breakaway group, where Custer managed to fly the coup with Ryan McKinney of DC Velo in the last mile. Custer won a drag race with McKinney, while Taylor closed out with 4th place.

Meanwhile, in the field, the remaining Bike Doctor crew assembled at the front and drilled it in the frantic and fast finishing straight, setting up Weinstein in a drag race with David Bozak of DC Velo. Bozak (9th) just edged Weinstein (10th) out. Beers and smiles were had all around!

A special shout-out goes to Emir, Warner’s son. This kid is a PRO at feeding! He recorded 6 bottle feeds in one pass in the 123 race. Our team would be left on the side of the road with dehydration if not for his great support and skills! Thanks, Emir!

In the Cat 3 race, Bickling & Chun stayed patient and hidden. With no breaks going clear, Chun found Bickling and worked hard to get him in position to sprint for the win. Bickling uncorked his move for the line but was just edged out at the line. Unfortunately, our resident Doctor found out afterward that he had been relegated to 15th for a dangerous move. How the nicest guy on the planet goes all terrorist on us we will never understand, but we support the official’s ruling, learn from it and move on.
