A canceled World 24-hour MTB Championship...

I along with the cycling community are very upset and in disbelief to learn that the World 24-hour MTB Championships has been cancelled.  I (along with many others) have trained long and hard all year in preparation for this race while my family has sacrificed time together to support me.  Saying that I am upset and disappointed is an understatement!  I have put money, planning, energy, training, and resources towards this race trip (over the last year) that cannot be undone. Also, I have received much support from my sponsors, family, and friends--THANK YOU.  I want to finish my 2012 racing year by putting my training into an elite level race.  How can I do this...I can go back to Colorado Springs to compete at the 24-hour US National Championships.  The money, planning, energy, training, and the support I had for World's will now be put towards Nationals with high expectations.  Thank you for your continued support as race day is 45 days away.

  1. I'm so sorry to hear this! It is awful, but I'm glad to hear you are going to compete in the Nationals! Go out there and put all your anger and frustration into the race and dominate! Good Luck boss
