Silver Spring Grand Prix

Europe may have the Tour de France (perhaps a bit less exciting with the absence of a certain retired American), but here in Silver Spring we have a bike race of our own. In categories that began at 8:00am, men, women, kids and over-40s were all represented. But the real excitement started at 1:00 with the Silver Spring Grand Prix Men’s Pro 1/2/3.

With pros, including some national champions, entered in the event I was convinced the local boys were out of their league. Surprise! Ken Young, member of a team sponsored by Clean Currents and Don Beyer Volvo, took first place.

With the “ban” lifted, photographers were out in force, including yours truly.
