It's Vermont, they are fibbing about the climbing for Stages 1 & 2, aren't they? It can't include just minor climbing. Folks with the truth out there, please inform.

Although, now that I've transformed into a monster climber (), maybe, just maybe, I go.

I like that the TT is sponsored by a brewery.

Grumpy McTrumpy, I saw that for Stage 3 -- yeah, some climbing there. But, check out the images for Stages 1 & 2; looks like a no climbing worries situation.

depends on the pace. Bear Mtn looks pretty tame on paper too.

looks like a condensed version of the original.

it's been far too long since i rode a bike in vermont, but hammertoe and/or greg180 should have some input.

I grew up in VT, albeit further north than this race is held. But I've ridden most of those roads at one point or another.

You can find flat in VT, as long as you parallel the mountains. Just not for more than a mile or so.

If I remember correctly, stage 1 has one short kicker that doesn't show up in the elevation graph thingie. Stage 2, riden that road, it just makes you feel slow. False flat. Stage 3 is going to hurt at the end, but you can tell that from the map.

I'm in. A race. Cat 3. yay me.

plan: TT and RR no scare me. RR= attack@ mile 42 if I'm not already detached from lead group. Then hang on for dear life.
