Rooted Vermont Anyone?

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.

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.
