The Nats racing presidents did their part to speed things up during Wednesday night’s epic victory over the Miami Marlins, running the fourth inning presidents race aboard special edition cherry blossom bicycles provided by Capital Bikeshare. Teddy Roosevelt put on an impressive showing, racing from far behind the pack to pull away at the end.
The Rough Rider is now once again alone atop the presidents race standings.

Perhaps Teddy was inspired by recent events.
Perhaps, just 2 days after “honest” Abe Lincoln pushed and cheated his way to victory, avoiding disqualification while knocking down his opponents, Teddy Roosevelt concluded that the judges weren’t paying attention.
Of course, he could have picked a more subtle way to cheat.
On Sunday, before a crowd of 20,747 at Nationals Park, Teddy pulled out one of his old tricks, coming from behind aboard a motor scooter, passing the other presidents and leaving them in the dust.
Screech, of course, ignored the roar of the approving crowd and disqualified Teddy immediately. Abe Lincoln, sensing opportunity, paced the other presidents and was granted the win.
