Second day of the Philippi/Moe’s weekend, and it was hot! Not only was it ‘temperature hot, but it was also one of the more active races this town has seen in a while. Thad’s course had only praise spoken about it; everyone seemed to be enjoying the town, and the company of cyclists abound, and people were excited to come back next year in 2011!
I was fortunate enough to get to the top of the course before the race started, and worked my way down, shooting video the entire way.
After the race, I went around, asking riders and spectators alike, what they thought of the race, the town, and overall questions about cycling in West Virginia. Everyone was very supportive and love what is going on in the area.
I saw more people from the Western Maryland Wheelmen, and PGH Racing, these guys are everywhere. Joey Riddle, and the whole JBS squad was out in their attire, and of course tons of Morgantownians/WVU cycling peeps were racing. Good times.
If you were not able to attend anything in Philippi this weekend, make sure you are able to make it next year, I’m sure you won’t regret it!
