Welcome to the home of the largest Pro/Am road stage race east of the Mississippi!
September 7, 2015
Thanks goes out to all the racers who competed at this year's GMSR. The racing was very exciting with many outcomes decided by a few seconds or just a single point.
All results are posted on our results page. Photos and a race wrap up email and post will be coming soon.
Photos of today's podium ceremony held at Sugarbush are now posted in an album on our Facebook page. Just one more reason to like the GMSR on Facebook
We had a fantastic day of racing on Stage 1. The weather was fantastic and some very fast times were the result.
A big thanks to our sponsor Vermont Teddy Bear. They have supported the race for many years and have provided us with custom attired bears for the GC winner to take home.
News Flash - Our crack registration and web team have now posted the TT Start Times!
The Pre-Race Communique is now posted.
Thie year's ITT is dedicated to our friend and Warren Public Works Director Barry Simpson (show above) who is making a good recovery after some surgery so he will not be joining us this year in his custom aero hard hat. Get well soon Barry!

Do you like to race in perfect sunny and warm conditions? Well you will be very happy with the forecast for this weekend. While weather predicting is more art then science in Vermont there seems to be good agreement that this weekend is going to be fantastic!
We have opened a second 4/5 field and split the two fields by age with a field for racers 36+ and a field for younger racers. Register soon if you would like to compete in either of these fields.
New for this year we have added an event for kids 7-10 during the Stage 4 criterium. 7 & 8 year olds will ride one shortened lap and 9 & 10 year olds will ride 2 shortened laps. Medals will be awarded to everyone who enters. Registration is free but there are only 30 slots in each age group so register soon on Bikereg.
We are excited for some new and improved pavement on both the circuit race course on Rt. 100 in Duxbury. The pavment here was already quite good but it has been repaved again this summer. Also a layer of new pavement is been laid down in much of Granville Gulf which is making for some great riding up to the high point of this part of the road race course.
