The Catamount Outdoor Family Center, nestled in the beautiful Green Mountains of Vermont, will host the first two rounds of the Verge New England Championship Cyclo-cross Series, September 27 and 28.
The weekend will feature some of the nation's top cyclo-cross stars as well as two of the best courses New England has to offer. "We've been holding cyclo-cross races at Catamount for years now. It's a passion of ours, and we are honored to be a part of the Verge NECCS Series, arguably the top Cyclo-cross series in the country," says Eric Bowker. "We consistently hear each year is how beautiful the setting is and how challenging the courses are. We are really excited to bring the Catamount cross experience to a larger audience as part of the Verge NECCS Series."
The Green Mountain Cyclo-cross Weekend is a Cat. 2 UCI event with two days of UCI points on the line. The event will also serve as a springboard for the points race in all categories for the Verge NECCS series. After the Vermont Cyclo-cross Weekend, the NECCS moves onto Gloucester Grand Prix of Cross (Oct. 3 & 4), Cycle-Smart International (Nov. 1 & 2), Bay State Cyclo-cross (Nov. 29) and NBX Grand Prix (Dec. 6 & 7).
The Catamount Outdoor Center is located minutes from downtown Burlington and the Burlington International Airport. It is an easy drive from Boston, New York and Montreal. Free on site camping is available. For further information about the weekend and area lodging please visit www.catamountoutdoor.com.
