KILLINGTON — Ian Clarke and Turner Ramsay, members of the Killington Mountain School cycling team, recently traveled to Connecticut to compete in the 2014 New England Road Championships.
Clarke rode a smart race, pulling away to take the win in the hotly contested, and well-populated Cat 3 field! Coach Brad Ramsay comments that “it was an exciting race and tremendous effort by Clarke.”
Turner Ramsay had a great race as well and is the Junior Women New England Road Race Champion; however, that is by default! Coach Ramsay would like to encourage every junior (male and female) to race next year. It is difficult for promoters to offer junior categories when juniors stop showing up for races, he said, adding, “please try to get out and support junior racing!”
To top it off, KMS Cycling Alum Brendan Rhim, got away from the PRO 1/2 field to take the win!
Look for KMS riders at the Green Mountain Stage Race over Labor Day weekend. The course includes the Middlebury Gap and the Appalachian Gap for a challenging 64-mile ride with 5,560 feet elevation gain.
