hey, Adam -
A while back, Myerson had a blog post over at Cycle-Smart regarding the 2011-12 Verge schedule -
not sure if that is/was firm or not, and from what I understand, a new UCI sanctioned series is being born out of some of the Verge events for fast dudes like you.
FYI - The Nor'Easter cx race looks like it's going to be at North Beach in Burlington this year, which should be interesting. I've been trying to track other potential races and the following is what I've compiled so far based on Myerson's blog post, event hearsay, NYCROSS info, etc. - some of the early MA races are already up on Bikereg, but i wouldn't put anything on the calendar until the other dates have been confirmed.

Yeah, I heard about the Noreaster race this past weekend. Colin thinks it's going to be pretty awesome. Think: beach run. Lots of times.
It's great that there will be more quality CX races happening in VT this season.
Focused training for CX is only a couple of months away.
word. if all goes well at the Nor'Easter this year, I'd like to adopt that race and see that it happens annually, then get something going at Oakledge or Leddy for a full weekend of racing in BTV since Parks and Rec is seemingly open cyclocross.
See you at TNW or MTB at Catamount . .. i don't have the legs to do 'em back to back yet, but i'm getting there. cheers,
Let's talk more about adopting the race in the future.
Next time I see you... which should be soon enough.
