Gavin Vaughan is trying to put together a WAMBA team to compete in this years Killington Up&Down race being held this Sunday Oct 2nd. He would the Downhill part so he is looking for a road rider and cross country rider to do the first two stages. This is a fund raiser for the Killington Mountain Bike Club so it is a good cause with a party after the race. Gavin did this race last year so he can tell you all about it.
Killington Mountain Bike Club, Mountain Bike Vermont and Sushi Yoshi are proud to announce the return of the Killington Up & Down Roll Sunday, October 2nd. Round up your fastest roadie, cross country and downhill friends because this year’s event is a relay. Riders will compete in teams of three for each respective leg of the event.
A road racer will trigger the action in a mass start up East Mountain Road (Skyship Base Area) to K1 Base Area. The roadie will tag their cross-country team member who will ride a series of trails that finish at the K1 Peak Lodge. Tagging their downhill team member, the downhill racer will stop the clock after racing back down to Snowshed.
After the race all the riders will congregate for a critical mass ride from Snowshed to the after party at Sushi Yoshi.
Building on last year’s success, the event will highlight the momentum of the cycling community in Vermont. What better way to celebrate our sport than at an event that all cyclists can ride together?!
