The VT3


2018VT3 1700x400 xave2Registration is now open on 

VT3...minus 2:  One day of racing fun, Sunday, August 18
After consulting with our community and assessing our venue options we are stoked to invite everyone to the Craftsbury Outdoor Center​ on Sunday, the 18th of August for a one-day wonder NEK race day.

$25 gets you 15 or 30 miles of lots of singletrack, some dirt road, some ski trails, and a whole lot of fun. Registration and details here:
The backstory:
We are bummed to announce that we will be unable to run The VT3 as a 3 day stage race this year. Low registration and venue challenges rendered hosting a stage race a losing proposition for both organizers and participants.

2019 VT3 Categories

We keep things simple. Open men and open women will be eligible for cash prizes for 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place. Fastest male and female cumulative time for the weekend takes the respective overall wins, along with category prizes for the top 40+ male and female racer, the top junior boy and girl, the top U23 man and woman, and the top singlespeed man and woman. We are very excited to announce that in 2019 we are offering equal cash payouts to the top three men and women in the overall. 

Back again for 2019, we are offering a short course option. This means you race just 1 lap on Stages Two and Three. No switching back, no bailing out. Same VT3 - shorter, but just as sweet. To register for the short course just select that option on BikeReg.

And new for 2019, we are offering stage-only categories for both Stages 2 (Saturday) and 3 (Sunday). If you only have the time or energy for one day, you can still experience the VT3.
