A night at Seward Park
The last shot of our week long Raleigh shoot just happened to be at Seward Park and was wrapped by about 5:45 which gave MOFI rider Chris time to quickly change into his kit and jump into the 6pm race. The goal was to get a little race pace, not crash and help MOFI uber crit master Cal Spranger at the end. Cal is fresh off a win at Ballard this past weekend and is the current points leader in the 6pm Seward series so maybe he really didn’t need that much help. Regardless, since we had our cameras Greg was nice enough to shoot the race as well.
Seward is just about one of the nicest bike related things we have going in Seattle – a beautiful venue, generally good turn outs and lots’a fun racing. If you’re curious about bike racing as well it is a great place to begin.
The race went pretty much as planned until there were about 9 laps to go. After dragging a pedal around the turn at the top Chris’ rear tire blew and he was out. Coming up the rise before the line on the last lap was Cal where he usually is giving it full gas. No win tonight though, he was pipped at the line and had to settle for second. All in all a good night which was nicely wrapped up with dinner at MFR team sponsor Pizzeria Pulcinella.
