The East Coast’s longest running stage race, begins in Warren, Vermont with a individual time trial. Warren features plenty of small town vibes, from cooling off in its plentiful creeks to enjoying hometown treats at the Warren Country Store.
Cyclists from Canada and the eastern seaboard flock to Vermont each year to take on the challenging stages and hard climbing found in the Green Mountains. For nineteen years, this race has often acted as a launching pad to the pro ranks, and has featured some of the best racers in the country. This year is no different with Nate Brown (Education First), Lex Albrect (Tibco-Silicon Valley Bank), and Marie-Soleil Blais (Astana Women's Team) coming from the World Tour.
Multiple continental pro and elite teams have made the trip this year, but Green Mountain also provides a unique opportunity for amateurs of all levels to test themselves.
In addition to four days of exciting racing, all riders, no matter what their background get to experience the charm and challenge of Vermont’s terrain.
