We’re pleased to announce the 2009 Pro-Team Discount Program for the 50th edition of the Longsjo. This improved discount program applies to Pro/1 Men, and Pro 1/2 Women.

  • Register 4 riders by May 25th and get one free

  • Register 6 riders by May 25th and get two free. Register the first riders online, and we’ll create manual entries for the complimentary positions.

  • If you have a past Longsjo champion on your team, current national or world champion, (any specialty, road, track, mountain, etc.) a member of the 2008 Olympic team (any specialty or nation) then that rider’s entry fee is automatically waived!

  • If one of your team directors or managers is a past Longsjo champion and is going to attend the 2009 Longsjo with the team, then we can add a bonus free registration!

Colavita is the first full team to sign up, and 2008 winner Kyle Wamsley will attempt to defend his title!

2009 Fitchburg Longsjo Classic Podcast - Episode Four - 2001 Criterium Storm

This episode of the Longsjo Podcast has some incredible footage of the soaking rain that forced the early cancellation of the Pro Men's Criterium in 2001. Baden Cooke took the stage win, as Dick Ring made the call. I remember hearing stories about the rivers that were flowing down the middle of Main St. when this happened. You can see in some of these shots what people are talking about. Anyone want a Briko Umbrella? -Ed
