American Pro Cyclist Ian Boswell announces the Peacham Fall Fondo

Get ready for 50 plus miles of iconic gravel roads in and around Peacham, Vermont on October 13th

Riders will experience the stunning Vermont fall foliage, scenic views of vibrant mountains studded with iconic barns and farmland, 50+ miles of gravel riding.

American Pro cyclist Ian Boswell currently rides for WorldTour team Katusha–Alpecin.  He’s just finished up riding the Spring Classics and recently rode Liege-Bastogne-Liege. Ian’s palmares are impressive, he’s won the Nevada City Classic twice and podiumed at the Tour of Utah, winning the young riders classification.

More recently, Ian has ridden many WorldTour stage races and Grand Tours including the Giro d’Italia and La Vuelta. He’s won stages of the Tour of the Gila, a La Vuelta Team Time Trial and finished 5th overall at the 2017 Tour of California.

Ian has made Peacham, a small, rural and leafy village in Vermont his new home. Being a professional cyclist means that Ian is rarely at home for most of the season.

Ian stated “I just want to get people out and share all the amazing dirt around my new home. Peacham is also a very community oriented village, of which I can’t always help out as I am away. This ride is a way of me giving back and any profit will go back into the community.”

“I’m putting on the Peacham Fall Fondo as a charity event, to let riders experience the area's finest gravel and mixed terrain, while showcasing the fall foliage storybook of reds, oranges, and yellows- the type of stuff that lures travellers and riders alike from around the world”.

Ian has a hectic schedule for the rest of the season, he's racing the Tour of California, Criterium du Dauphine, the Tour de France, San Sebastian and finally La Vuelta!
