Epic Summer Event

vssmI’m putting up a shameless plug for the Epic Summer Event at the Trapp Family Lodge in Stowe, VT.  The race is #6 in the EFTA New England Championship series and will benefit the Vermont Ski and Snowboard Museum.   The promoter, Brian Irwin, was one of my rivals early in my racing career.  In fact, he cost me the 1st place win in the first Wicked Witch of the East stage race at Sugarbush by edging me out of one of the time bonuses during the dirt crit. stage.  I don’t hold on to these kinds of things, honest, I don’t…

Regardless, I expect that this will be a really good race.  Brian knows what makes a good course and he’s been getting things ready for this weekend by getting out to mark the course in the heat, humidity and mosquitos.   The course is a 20km loop with no shortage of climbing – this is real Vermont riding.  This will include some of the same great trails we rode during last year’s SSUSA course, although I expect pretty much everyone to be sober when descending Kimmers this time around.  According to Brian, the trails are still in great shape and pretty dry considering all the rain that we’ve had lately.

They have $2500 in prizes with a drawing based on bib numbers, so you don’t need to win to have a chance at coming home with something.  Registration closes on Friday on Bikereg.com.
