Stage 2 of the Green Mountain Stage Race takes us south to Randolph and a beautiful rolling circuit race. In theory while this is a day for the sprinters, it’s also for the opportunists with the first points up for grabs in the KOM and Sprint jersey competitions. The race for the breaks often creates aggressive riding early, while yesterday’s TT winners look to keep things steady and hold onto their overall leads.
The big straight road allows a unique opportunity for a true wide-open sprint finish and truly lets the sprinters shine. After the stage racers have the opportunity to get some goat meat tacos from the local host, Ayers Brook Dairy.

- "I’m, ready, but well, I’m ready, but we’ll see how the legs feel tomorrow, it’s going to be hard for sure, it’s a hard stage” - Paula Valderrama, Cat 3 KOM winner
-“A couple miles in there’s a new dirt climb, so I guess I’m going to send it up that and see if I can get a few more points” - Richard Arnopol, Cat 1 KOM
