Gravel Race up Spruce Knob, 2019 edition
Huge congratulations to Christophers Jr. and Sr. for brilliant rides in this epic, and super difficult, gravel race with 8,000 feet of climbing spread over 75 miles.
Christopher Hardee, Jr. was first among juniors and very near the open race podium at 7th or 8th overall; dad was a few minutes behind for 3rd in the 50+ race and around 12th overall.
DCVelo racing legend John Epting also took a start on Saturday, muddy bike pictured below.
Super impressive day of racing, all around!
