City Bikes RFK Criterium - Washington DC Sunday May 25th 2008
Lorena Candrian with HPC powered by Altarum and Dave Fuentes with Battley HARLEY-DAVIDSON/Sonoma claim victory in Washington DC at the 2008 City Bikes RFK Criterium presented by Hub Racing. They not only won the pro bike races on the Grand Prix Course at RFK Stadium, they also both won the mid-race Prime: an all expense paid trip to the 2008 Gran Premio de Guatemala in September.
Candrian, who is a teacher off the bike, commented after her win: "I was checking the school schedule last night to see if I could go if I won the prime for Guatemala. And I just figured, it was worth it, I'll find a way. So the team put me in the right position to sprint for the trip and the win. It was a good day for HPC." Candrian, for winning the featured womens pro race and 2 primes, won a total of $1050 plus the all expense paid trip to Guatemala. Fuentes, for winning the men's pro race along with a total of 3 primes on the day, takes home a total of $600 plus the trip to the Gran Premio de Guatemala.
Washington DC Mayor Adrian Fenty raced in the Category 5 (entry level) race for Fleet Feet Racing and took 10th place. His brother Shawn Fenty (Clean Currents p/b Don Beyer Volvo) took 15th in the Men's Masters Age 35+ race. Marjan Huizing of Team Kenda Tire out-sprinted a Womens Masters Age 40+ field packed full of impressive veteran pro riders and City Bikes sponsored club Artemis Racing took victory in the Womens 3 category with Judith Wexler. The Hub Racing women won some of their own cash with 2 money placings in the womens pro race: new mom Brooke O'Connor and Elizabeth Morse Hill. And Hub Racing development racer Jennifer Wolfson took 6th in the Womens Category 4 before handling race registration the rest of the day.

Thanks to the racers of all the categories, the 2008 City Bikes RFK Criterium raised over $1000 for the Doug Gordon Memorial Easter Seals Fund. The event, in its 6 year history, has now helped raise over $6000 for the fund.
