The 2010 Verge New England Championship Series has been modified. Adam Myerson of Cycle-Smart received feedback that the races were too many that it left some of the riders haggard, trying to attend to all of the races in the series. This year, Myerson reduced the number of races amking it a win-win situation for the riders and the organizers as well.
Myerson stated that the reason behind the reduction was to allow flexibility which the riders crave, wider coverage to include different regions in New England and to help making the contest flow go smoothly. “I want to ease that burden of having too many races for people to do all of them, and let the bigger races have the freedom to operate outside the Series. I also want to ease the burden on Verge, and on our staff. This frees up those bigger weekends, and my new race, to make their own arrangements in terms of schedule, sponsors, entry fees, and other details.”
Hopeful for the series to expand in the future, Myerson is also optimistic that some of the previous UCI races that were part of the series will come back.
