This year’s Rasputitsa could not have been more different than 2016. It was cold and rainy. The route was muddy and snowy. The cyclocross course at the end was borderline ridiculous. And yet, you take all those things, throw in riding friends, enthusiastic supporters and matching wool jerseys and you have an epic weekend grinding gravel.

A huge shout out to race organizers Heidi and Anthony for another amazing year. Thank you also to Katie, Lindsey, Kelly, Jules and Kristin for capturing moments from the ride.

    GREAT ride. Despite it’s less fair conditions, I liked it dramatically more than 2016’s sunfest. Grades steeper in the 2017 counterclockwise direction, however!

    CX ending was the BEST!
