The Gran Course time cut-off point!
There is a time point on the Gran course at the 65 mi mark after the descent out of Ripton into East Middlebury. This is located at the Rt 125 & Lower Palins Rd intersection. Any Gran riders not at this point by 6 hours in, it is strongly recommended that they continue onto the the final route to the finish by continuing straight on Rt 125 and on towards Middlebury. (FYI – finishing early at this point is similar to completing the Medio course stats.
It is on the rider to be aware of their energy levels and make a judgment on whether to take on the full 130 miles.
Rest, relax, and send us your photos.
