Fort Washington 2014 Series Winners

By on August 21, 2014

After three weeks of great racing and probably even more fun clinics, the Battle for Fort Washington has concluded! Recaps for each of the evenings are all online: Week 1, Week 2, Week 3.

All of our supporters have been extremely generous, and there are a number of prizes for our top beginners to help them get primed for next year’s racing. Congratulations go to all our racers, particularly the newcomers, and especially the star riders below.

Weekly Prizes

Each week we’ve been giving out gift cards and water bottles courtesy Winnie’s LeBus Manayunk, Human Zoom Bikes and Boards, and Fuji Bikes to the field winners as well as the top riders among categories 3–5, men and women. If you won a prize, as listed on the results (week 1, 2, 3), but did not pick it up, you should contact us to claim it & figure out the exchange. Otherwise we’ll be awarding them among the beginners’ fields at this Sunday’s QCW Arsenal Crit and future events.

Series Participation

Philadelphia Bikesmith has graciously donated a Big Tuneup package for each of the Women’s 3/4, Men’s 5, and Men’s 4 categories. The Big Tuneup is a comprehensive going over, probably something your bike needs after a long summer. Each of the following have won this service, randomly selected with a weighting by series participation (days raced):

  • Women’s 3/4: Emily Costello (QCW Cycling p.b.
  • Men’s 5: Scott Santos (unattached)
  • Men’s 4: Patrick Zbyszewski (Spinteck Cycling Team)
