Robin Kay and Jouko Haapanen, our LDCC's First Couple of Gravel, traveled to Vermont to participate in the infamous Rasputitsa. Historically an gruelling, cold, wet and muddy fair. This year's race was no exception. 

In Robin’s words… 

2017 Rasputitsa Spring Classic in the books. Lots of rain. Lots of mud. Lots of suffering. Pretty much a perfect day! Until someone fell on my bike and snapped off my derailleur. Luckily only ~2k from the finish. Ran it in no problem. Good for a 2nd place finish in my age category. Jouko had a fantastic race finishing in 2h 27min giving him a 8th place finishing in his category.
