KILLINGTON— Over Memorial Day weekend, hundreds of cyclists descended on the region to compete in the annual Killington Stage Race (KSR), a three-day road bike race held May 27-29. The top men’s and women’s cyclists earned $3,000 in prizes.

The second stage, Sunday, took cyclists on a 61- or 76-mile course from the Skyeship Gondola, up through Pittsfield, through Barnard to Woodstock, then back. The third stage, Monday, was an 11-mile sprint headquartered at Long Trail Brewery in Bridgewater Corners.
