The Magic Hat Brewing Company, Ben & Jerry¹s Ice Cream and Louis Garneau present the first annual Vermont Gran Prix of Cross, September 23 and 24th at the Catamount Family Outdoor Center in Williston, Vermont. The weekend's slate of races will culminate with a UCI-sanctioned 'cross race on Sunday, September 24th; the first of the U.S. domestic season.
In Euro 'cross style, the Vermont Gran Prix of Cross will feature a beer tent stocked with Vermont's own Magic Hat beer and free ice cream from Ben and Jerry¹s for children and adults alike. "We're tring to bring a little bit of Belgium style 'cross racing to Vermont," says Erik Bowker, race director.
Racing begins on Saturday with a non-sanctioned UCI 'cross event and a UCI (Cat. 2) event on Sunday. Each race will be held on a separate course to give riders and spectators two different experiences. In addition to individual race winners, racers will be vying for overall omnium titles.
