28th Annual West Hill Shop Cyclocross Race and Vermont State Championships
Sunday, November 4, 2018.
This will be our third year on the "new" course. The feedback has been fantastic with an all around thumbs up so we are keeping things mostly the same with a few possible new features. For you few diehards who miss the corn field...sorry, no more corn field. Overall the course is more single-tracky-technical with a second run up added. Come check it out!
This weekly cross fix happens every Wednesday on our race course right here at the shop. Be ready to role at 5:30pm (but you can ride earlier). Doesn't matter if you are a racer or a newbie. Come and enjoy the work out, get tips from the veterans, try to better your time, or just meet some cross geeks. It's free and all are welcome!
West Hill Shop in the past sponsored two time trials.
The oldest and longest running was the Route 30 TT, which was a 9 mile out-and-back timed route starting in Brattleboro and then west out Route 30 to the turn-around. Started in 1978, it was run annually for many years, and then intermittently until 2014. A total of 325 racers were timed for the time trial, and Noal Elbers still holds the best time of 19:13 recorded in 1998. Full results can be found HERE.
The Kurn Hattin Hill Climb was a more recent time trial run from 2008 to 2013. This time trial was run up the locally famous Kurn Hattin hill in Westminster, climbing 732 feet over a distance of 3.2 miles, with several pitches over 7%. Full results can be found HERE.
