FJG Race to the Top of Vermont-new course record!

On Sunday, August 29, Adam and I entered a mountain bike hill climb called the FJG Race to the Top of Vermont in Stowe.

I went into it defending my previous record and set a new course record for women on Sunday with a time of 43:26:7, two minutes faster than last year.

Adam placed 2nd in his age category and 4th overall. His time was 38:42, 1:27 faster than last year.

The course is 4.3 miles long and climbs 2,663 vertical feet on the famous Mt. Mansfield Toll Road to the summit parking lot. The racecourse starts on pavement for a third of a mile, then switches to gravel for 4 miles.

Racers face a steady incline throughout the course, with a 10-degree maximum pitch. Among the rewards is one of the most spectacular views in the East, overlooking three states and Canada.
