Routing between Vlans and VM's issue

I currently deploy a 4208vl and am trying to route between 2 vlans.  these vlans break up the host machine and virtual machines being deployed.  Below is the current configuration.  The issues comes into play when a Virtual Machine needs to communicate with the host machine on a different network.


We are using Vmware 4 along with the VM's running Windows 2k8.  The hosts are dual NIC on the 10.1.x.x and the VM's are on the 205.68.121.x network.  One nic is on G1 and the other is on G21.
