Race Report: KSR, A View From The Back

By: Jared Skolnick This photo sort of sums up the weekend for me:   It was the Killington Stage Race (KSR,) I finished (like the sign says,) and there was always someone in front of me (and rarely anyone behind me.) But I’m getting ahead of myself…

Race Report: The Killington Stage Race
