Upstate NY Races

Hey I live just outside of Saratoga Springs, NY and am looking to get into racing a little this summer and am looking for some races in the area. Anybody know of any? Crits, Circuits, RRs, anything. Thanks, Greg

Try visiting local shops?

I'm originally from Rochester & Syracuse. Raced in the '90s. Not as many races then as I have access to out here in SoCal. Being in Albany, you have access to upstate & downstate, depending on drive. Nice.

it's the whole state. (why I asked you how far you are willing to drive).

not a whole heck of a lot up where you are, but the North Country race weekend will be major.

Lots of races in the area. Come up to Lake Placid for my race weekend June 12th and 13th!

I will be at the crit on sunday. Look for the guy coughing up a lung in a white kit in the 3/4 field.

Thanks man. Only bad thing about that race is I think I got sick from the cold/rain. Felt good, went waaaaay to early in the sprint but thought I was going to be boxed in again so went for it. Either way I will take a 4th. I was giving Gregoire a hard time after the race, he almost had it.
