Rasputitsa Spring Classic
Saturday April 27, 2019
Rasputitsa is Russian for “mud season”—which gives you a pretty accurate preview of this 40-mile race for bragging rights in northern Vermont. In keeping with the Russian theme, the highlight of the course is “Cyberia,” a Class IV road that a former race participant described as “a scary backwoods where at any time a Yeti or Bengal tiger may jump out of the woods, bludgeon you with a blunt object, and either leave you for dead or drag you back into the woods for a nice little Saturday brunch.” Need more recommendations? “Total sufferfest,” pronounces Olympian Lea Davison. Make it through the race, though, and you’ll be privy to poutine, maple-syrup shots, Vermont beers, and music.
Stay in the Burke Mountain Hotel & Conference conveniently located mid-mountain and five minutes from the start/finish area of the race the Burke Mountain Sherburne Base Lodge. The Hotel has secure/inside bike storage which comes free with ever guest room. Rooms range from basic studio up to three bedroom units.
