ECCC Race Day

The UVM cycling club had their home races on the hill this past weekend. The contest consisted of two cross-country mountain bike races, and two downhill races. The contestants began early saturday morning with a cross-country bout on the “pup trails” our free-use cross-country mtb circuit beginning below the parking lot from the sports center. From there the athletes took to the lifts, with the track set for Racecourse > Wright Brothers, with 150 or so racers taking to the dirt. There were racing representatives from UVM, MIT, UMass, UNH, Harvard, RIT, Penn State, UMaine, and many more eastern collegiate powerhouses.
