We are very excited to announce that registration for the 2022 GMSR will open today (Friday 6/10) at 6pm!
We will have four days of racing September 2-5. The four stages include our strong man/women TT, a fun 37 miles per lap circuit race, our legendary 65-mile Mad River Road Race which climbs the Middlebury Gap and finishes on the summit of the Appalachian Gap Vermont's highest four-season road. The event will conclude with the six turn Burlington Criterium in beautiful downtown Burlington on one of the most challenging and fun criterium courses you will find anywhere.
For 2022 we will have fields for Women Pro/1/2/3 and Cat 3/4/Novice. For Men we will have Pro/1/2, Cat 3, Cat 4, 40+, 50+/60+ and Juniors. Because of imposed time limitations on the race on Monday’s Stage 4 we are only going to have a single Cat 4 field and will not have a Novice category for men this year. If you are a Novice man who wants to race you have time to upgrade to Cat 4 in the coming months. As a result of having only a single Cat 4 field we recommend that you register early to be sure you will have a place in the event. For the Men 40+ we are once again starting with a waiting list as this has been a challenging field to attract enough racers. If you would like to compete in a 40+ field, please register early. You will not be charged unless we have sufficient committed interest on the waiting list.
We had a great turnout in 2021 and expect an even better turnout this year now that racers for Canada can cross the border and compete. As a result, we expect many popular fields to fill early. We will open a waiting list once a field is full. If the GMSR is a priority race you can avoid the stress and uncertainty of being on the waiting list by registering early.
Finally, we are recommending that you seriously consider the race insurance offered by BikeReg. Please read about the coverage limitations to be sure it is suitable for you. We do recognize that registration is not inexpensive, and the insurance will cover you should you be injured or ill and unable to attend. The GMSR does not make any money from the sale of the insurance.
Thanks for reading, we hope to have you competing at this year’s GMSR.
