Rooted was today: what an amazing event! I’d highly recommend it to any of you northeast gravel racers/riders. Incredibly well-organized, huge number of volunteers, fun “mullet protocol” that cares as much about the back of the pack as the pros in the front, and we were treated to a beautiful Vermont morning with only a bit of rain several hours in.
Anyone else here race?
Here’s a shot of my friend Jason (12th place today!) at the end of the difficult class IV (pavé) section on yesterday’s scouting ride.
This is on my list for next year! Glad to hear it was such a great time!!
Woohoo…just got the email!!
Just added it to my training plan.
I’ll see you there…I’ll be the tall, slow guy in the back
What did you run for a bike/gears/tires? I’m planning ahead and with the parts shortages I’d better order soon!!
I used my Crux with GravelKing 38 slicks. I had a wide gear range with 42 chainring and 9-46 cassette. 2x would work well too.
I’m in too! This will be first time for me.
Frank - I’ll be right behind you for party in the rear!!!
