Welcome to the home of the largest Pro/Am road stage race east of the Mississippi!
August 21, 2016
Today (Sunday) is the last day to save $30 off your entry for this year's event. You can register by ciicking here. We are looking forward to 4 great days of racing on September 2-5 and hope you can join us this year.
The Men's 4/5 Open field is now full! We have opened a waiting list. If you register on the waiting list you will not be charged unless a space opens and you move into the field. There are a few 40+ racers in the Open race and we are checking to see if they would be interested in moving in to the 40+. If you want to be first in line register for waiting list soon and perhaps you to will racing up the App Gap in two weeks!
The new circuit race course is posted on our Facebook page and will soon be posted here under stage 2.
We have some great changes planned for this year's GMSR. The most significant is a fantastic new course for the Stage 2 Circuit Race. The planned course is in a beautiful area with good pavement, several possible K/QoM sprints and will have the finish and feed zone in the same location making spectating and feeding easier. The details and permits are being finalized and we will get more information to you as soon as everything is in place.
Back in 2010 Lawson Craddock raced the GMSR for the Hot Tubes Team. That year he won the Stage 2 Circuit Race, the Stage 4 Criterium, the Sprint Competition and was second on GC. This year he competed in his first Tour de France, racing for the Cannondale Team! While we cannot promise that racing at the GMSR will land you at the TDF it is a great opportunity to see and perhaps race against many present and future stars of the sport.
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 winners to take home.
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!
There are three easy ways to keep up with the GMSR this year. One is to keep an eye on our website as we plan to regularly update this site with news and information. We also send out a limited number of emails to racers on our email list with reminders and news. You can sign up for that list on left. We offer an easy one button unsubscribe as well. Finally, you can follow us on Facebook.
