Folks, I had to make a sad call this morning and cancel the mountain bike race. Registration numbers were significantly below expectations and were at a point that we couldn’t really pull off a fun and competitive event.
I’m sorry for the disappointment and inconvenience. I’m torn about the decision, but just couldn’t justify proceeding given the likely outcomes. Your time is valuable, and I would have gladly used up your day putting on a solid race we could be proud of, but I can’t justify it on a lackluster one.
I want to thank you all for committing your time to this event. The response from our community has been really heartening - we’ve had great support from a number of groups and individuals committing their time and skills. You’re the people that make this a supportive and engaging town to live in, and I thank you for reminding me of what community really is.
For those of you who I’ve borrowed equipment from, I’ll be in touch to arrange for returns.
