As everyone prepares for the April/May “Spring Classics” keep in mind that this Fall’s season is shaping up to be something special.

The usual end of season Green Mtn. Stage Race will be followed consecutively by the Nancy Morgenstern Memorial Fall Bear Mtn. Race and the Tour of The Catskills Stage Race. These three races, back-to-back-to-back are probably the best and toughest races of the season. For those selected, the Univest Grand Prix is the same weekend as the Nancy Morgenstern Memorial Race.

To prepare for two peaks across a long season, Allen Lim recommends taking time off after the first peak. At the beginning or sometime in June, take a break. Stay off the bike, or do very minimal training for a week. Then come back and build for the second peak.
