Many details of the race are in place, but we are still working around some road construction projects. We would like to return to a two gap course for the road race and are looking into ways to make that a reality for this year.
Look for updates in the coming weeks. If you plan to compete this year it would be a great idea to book your loding now! A number of the smaller inns and B&Bs would love to host you, but often they fill up early with wedding parties. So don't miss out on getting your first choice of lodging book soon. To see all of our supporting loding properties please visit our loding page.
It was a great day for a TT. We had some really close racing in many fields. In the men 50+ the 2nd - 4th places are seperated by only 3 seconds.

Packet pick-up took place tonight at the Bridges Resort. We had a large group of racers patiently waiting for the doors to open. Once we started everyone got their numbers quickly. It was great to see so many familiar faces and get to hear how people have been doing this season.

For racers interested in the Gran Fondo on Sunday, you are in luck as we will have race day registration at the start at the Mt. Ellen base area.

Race day registration and bib pick-up for Gran Fondo riders will start at 7:45am just outside the Mt. Ellen base lodge. The GF will roll off the starting line promptly at 9:10.

While not every GMSR competitor becomes an olympian here is one who got her start racing at the GMSR! Hear her thoughts on the race in the video below.
Here is another GMSR leader's jersey wearer who made good getting his first start at the Tour de France this year. Congragulations to Ted King!
Last year Ted spent race weekend training in the Mad River Valley (the UCI would not allow him to race). Ted wrote on his blog about the event: "The Green Mountain Stage Race is either the best race you’ve never heard of… or the best race you’ve ever heard of. Period."
We are looking forward to seeing you all at this year's GMSR August 29 - September 1!
