Frequently Asked Questions

 

1. Is this a tough race?  Yes. You should start training today.  Please consider competing in one of the many great events in the Northeast ahead of the race as well.  The Tour of the Battenkill should not be your first race of the year!

 

2. Where does my entry fee go?  The costs of mass-participation road events like the Tour of the Battenkill have skyrocketed in recent years.  Police, professional staff, insurance, officials, and venues are all significant costs to the event.  All together, there are more than 500 people that are directly involved in the event weekend that are compensated in some way.  We are also proud to donate to the many volunteer groups that engage the event and help to ensure rider safety along the course each year.  Nevertheless, we have worked very hard to keep entry fees the same since 2013!  

 

3. What is Great American Cycling?  Great American Cycling is the organization that produces the Tour of the Battenkill, Tour of the Catskills, and many other epic cycling events across the Northeast, with a participantion base of more than 40,000 riders and racers since 2004.   

 

4. Why is this now an unsanctioned event?  Mass-participation events like the Tour of the Battenkill and others have evolved beyond the dated infrastructure that have traditionally operated to restrict the growth of events and the inclusion of a larger audience in the sport.  With the changing culture within competitive cycling, we are committed to bringing better value to participants in 2016 outside the confines of "sanctioning".  All Great American Cycling events will continue to provide a consistent level of support and service to the sport of cycling and its participants going forward.

 

5. Is the Pro/Am it still a race?  Yes, it;s basically the same as it has been since 2005, though with subtle changes.

 

6. Are there any rules?  Of course.  Though we will have the freedom, now, to make small changes (field sizes, junior gearing, etc.) the Pro/Am will look very much like it has always has since 2005.  We will enforce virtually all the traditional rules that are standard and expected within the sport.  Rules for all Great American Cycling events will be published online in the coming months.

 

7. So, it's pretty much the same as it always was?  Yeah, pretty much.
