the Vermont race sounds awesome. Exactly the kind of racing I wanna do. I am racing the French broad Cycling classic in Mars hill/Asheville in a month and half. Our team goes to 6 gaps 3-5 times for 3 day weekends throughout the year. Before French broad cycling classic ill be in Wisconsin for the prairie state games. I do appreciate your answers that gives me a lot better idea. If only I can get up to Green mountain. State road race is the month after that near November for us.
