2016 Tour of the Battenkill - UPDATE

Hello from Great American Cycling and the 12th Annual Tour of the Battenkill,

 

We are gearing up quickly for the 2016 season and are proud to announce the return of ‘America’s Queen of the Classics’  – the Tour of the Battenkill on Saturday, May 21, 2016 in Greenwich, NY.

 

Changes for 2016:

  • We’re going to a single day for the event in 2016 for both the Pro/Am and grand fondo on Saturday, May 21.  The full race schedule will be published soon.

 

  • ***  3 REGISTRATION PERIODS & FEES  ***
    • November 15-25 @  $95
    • January 15-25 @  $110
    • March 15 – May 14 @ $125
    • Registration will be closed for all fields in between these periods.

  • While our registration fee remains the same since 2013, the changing demographics in cycling and the upward pressure on event costs has led us to move away from the national governing body for 2016 in an effort to reduce costs and to broaden the audience for our event and for the sport of cycling.  This will allow us more freedom with field sizes and event staffing to streamline costs toward important elements like safety and rider experience.  It will also allow us to sustain the event for future editionsNevertheless, the race will be virtually identical to previous editions, with hired race officials, support vehicles, moto marshals and officials, full police and course marshal support, friendly & professional staff, and the Battenkill Valley hospitality & scenery familiar to all who have raced the Tour of the Battenkill in the past 12 years.  All of the traditional rules common and expected in the sport will still be enforced by race officials (yellow line rule, etc.). Also, no one-day license fees and no annual licenses are required.

 

  • Reduced number of fields for the Category 5 Men to just one per age group

 

  • Men Category 4 will have just 2 fields: under 40 and 40+

 

  • Pro/1 Men and Pro/1/2 Women are by invitation only.  Interested teams  should contact us for details.

 

  • Swag bags and event tees for all racers registering by May 1, 2016

 

 

The course for 2016 is the same as in 2015: 68 miles, 7 dirt road sections, and 4000 ft of climbing.  As in 2015, the start and finish is at the Washington County Fairgrounds; bathrooms, showers, ample & convenient parking, easier access to the interstate, and on-site camping are all available once again. By all accounts, the Fairgrounds worked very well in 2015.

 

Online registration for Pro/Am Reg Period 1 opens November 15 at 7 PM EST.  

REGISTER HERE.

 

Thanks,
