After an amazing four weeks of racing underground, we through convention to the wind for the finale. After an all-comers open week and the last race in a superb women’s series, the zaniness began.
The cargo-bike/bikeshare/tandem/whatever race is always a crowd favorite and this year was no different. With a rerouted course that brought racers through the happy hour, this was a party loosely disguised as a race.
To cap it off, we held the Fixed-Gear Finale, which once again proved to be one of the most exciting races of Wednesday Night Spins. John Shackleford kept the rubber side down and came away with his second WNS crown.
