We are all eagerly awaiting the beginning of the race season and doing snow dances. Unfortunately, due to current Vermont Guidance the opening Vermont Cup has been removed from the calendar. Quarry Road has gotten a jump start on their snowmaking and is optimistic to host their Opener on December 6th (popular race only / no chips) and the Eastern Cup Opener on December 20th. Registration for the Eastern Cup Opener will go live tomorrow. Registration for later Eastern and Vermont Cups will be moved closer to race dates so we have the most up to date information before opening.
We ask that all competitors who intend to race at the Quarry Road Eastern Cup Opener register to purchase their bib and rent their chip by tomorrow’s 5pm deadline. You can do that here. Please also take the time to thoughtfully make your season long race intents in the custom questions — this is very helpful for planning and creating safe event schedules. We will email a list of bibs and chips that will be sent in bulk to larger clubs shortly after registration closes (to all that registered) — the remainder will be picked up at the race site on the date of the competition. Bib and chip assignments will be listed at: https://www.bullitttiming.com/events/NENSA-bib-chip
We will also reopen bib purchase and chip rental for a second session — from December 2nd through December 31st — for Vermonters and those who might have missed the current window. There is no penalty for waiting until the second registration if you do not intend to race at Quarry Road.
Thank you all for your patience and resilience in these unprecedented times — NENSA will continue to make every effort to make safe competitions available throughout the season and we can’t wait to see you out on the tracks.
