Inspired by a similar post on another forum, I started looking for an A race that I’ve never done before. And it got me thinking about what is worth it for traveling. So I figured I get your input on races you’ve done in the past or still do and whether it’s worth to travel. And let’s say, break it down into drive to races and fly to races.
Drive: I live in the northeast US, and really want to do Green Mountain Stage Race this year. That’s a drive to race at 6 1/2 hours. Intelligentsia Cup would be another, though a bit longer at about 8 hours but probably still easier to drive with the bike and gear.
Fly: Tulsa Tough and Valley of the Sun stage race. I’d love to do the Tulsa Tough weekend. Race all 3 days and watch the pro races. Same with Valley of the Sun mostly because it’s 25F here in winter and I need some sun. Tour of America’s Dairyland would be up there as well for the number of races.
I left out flying to Europe for events because that would be a whole vacation, not just flying for a single event. Though my bucket list would be to take a couple weeks and do the Tour of Flanders and Paris-Roubaix sportives then watch the real races.
