From Matt Dutcher down in Kansas:
23 inches and counting...the winter precipitation total to date. Rain or snow falling on average every three days and a constant freeze/thaw cycle sure doesn't make for the best racing conditions.
We are all mountain bikers/trail runners and have a great passion for the sport.
All of our promoters are not only mountain bike racers/runners, but also individuals that are active trail builders and stewards that will always try to make decisions that are environmentally sound and best for our trail systems.
We are racers and have always established the highest standards for HSP races. We want our races to be fun, competitive, and offer the best racing experience possible. If we know the conditions are going to be substandard, that is not acceptable.
Taking all of the above into consideration and walking the trails this afternoon.....Truman's Big Love Cross Country (HMBCS #1) and Truman's Big Love 5/10k is POSTPONED. Both events have tentatively been re-scheduled for . Same time and location.
