Wicks wins stage 2 and narrows overall gap to Bishop

After Sunday's stage 1 time trial that put returning champion Jeremiah Bishop (Cannondale Factory Racing) just over one minute ahead of Barry Wicks (Kona Bikes) in overall GC, all eyes were on the two World Cup veterans to see who would emerge victorious in the treacherous 38-mile second stage of the Trans-Sylvania Mountain Bike Epic, a stage considered by most to be the hardest and most challenging. Weather reports called for sun and 90-degree temperatures with maximum swamp humidity.  In the end, Wicks won the stage while Bishop retained his overall lead, and Cheryl Sornson (Team CF) won the stage and took over the women's lead.
