Exciting news about the ADK North Country Race Weekend

One of my favorite races on the calendar, the Balloon Festival Road Race sponsored by Farm Team, has been canceled this year. This is a great race in an amazing town. I love racing out of Cambridge, NY as it is also the site of the Tour of the Battenkill. On a side note if you are ever in Cambridge you need to eat at the Common Ground Cafe, this place just rocks. The Balloon Festival course featured a killer climb in it which treated Team Wear On Earth member Bruce Beauharnois very well last year as he left with a win. This year the race was also going to hold the NYS Junior Championships the following day like it did last year. However both events are sadly not to be anymore.

However what does this mean for the Adirondack North Country Race Weekend? Well it was previously named the NYS Road Racing and Crit Championships however now it will also be hosting the Junior Championship in both events. We are working on updating the race flyer to reflect these changes so give us some time. This year will provide some great competition as we already have commitments from a few big name Canadian programs. Just in case you are not pumped for the race yet, check this video out...

Team Wear On Earth has had a few days off from racing which has been a nice break. This last weekends planned training camp was canceled due to, well snow. I know a great deal of us plan to attend the Montpelier Training Crit Series that starts up on Sunday. This will be my first race back with healthy lungs. I developed a bit of a chest cold after Binghamton which developed into severe bronchitis with a touch of pneumonia. Fun stuff really and spending the better part of my day in the hospital Thursday was not exactly the highlight of my birthday. For now I am just trying to regain fitness and get in some what decent shape for Syracuse and Killington.

Ride hard!
