Excel Search applied to a URL

I am attempting to search this URL "http://image.its.nv.gov:8082/WME_-_I580_at_I80_N_E_/image" to trim a portion of the location information.  I want to remove "http://image.its.nv.gov:8082/" and "/image" to obtain the "WME_-_I580_at_I80_N_E_" location information.  

I developed the following formula:  "=MID(A1,SEARCH("/",A1,8)+1,SEARCH("/image",A1)-SEARCH("/",A1,8)-1)"

This appears to work with my other locations such "http://lexus8.nvfast.org:8082/WME_-_I-15_SB_N_of_Primm/image" but does not work with anything starting with "http://image.its.nv.gov:8082/WME_-_I580_at_I80_N_E_/image".  I believe the problem is with the double "/image" in the URL.  

Sample URLS:  

http://image.its.nv.gov:8082/WME_-_I580_at_I80_N_E_/image
http://image.its.nv.gov:8082/WME_-_I580_at_I80_S_W_/image
http://image.its.nv.gov:8082/WME_-_I580_at_Kietzke_Lane/image
http://image.its.nv.gov:8082/WME_-_I580_at_Glendale_Ave/image
http://lexus6.nvfast.org:8083/WME_-_Eastern_and_Flamingo/image
http://lexus6.nvfast.org:8083/WME_-_Eastern_and_Tropicana_/image
http://lexus6.nvfast.org:8083/WME_-_Eastern_and_Sunset/image
http://lexus6.nvfast.org:8083/WME_-_Russell_and_Paradise/image

Current Excel Formula:  =MID(A1,SEARCH("/",A1,8)+1,SEARCH("/image",A1)-SEARCH("/",A1,8)-1)

Desired output:

WME_-_I580_at_I80_N_E
WME_-_I580_at_I80_S_W_
WME_-_I580_at_Kietzke_Lane
WME_-_I580_at_Glendale_Ave
WME_-_Eastern_and_Flamingo
WME_-_Eastern_and_Tropicana_
WME_-_Eastern_and_Sunset
WME_-_Russell_and_Paradise

Any help would be appreciated?
