MTB Classic Postponed - DU a GO

Due to the last band of heavy rain that hit Lawrence today and the forecasted rain on Friday, we (Cow Town Cycling & LMBC trail crew) have decided to postpone round #1 of the Unified Federation of Dirt – Saturday’s God’s Country Cross Country Classic. Providing a safe racing environment, maintaining the health of our trails, as well as providing a great racing experience are all major concerns of ours. With the recent weather this is not possible by Saturday. The new proposed date for the God’s Country Cross Country Classic is April 7, 2012. All entries will be transferred to the new date.

It is not all bad news for our festival. The weekend forecast looks great and with an extra day to dry out, Sunday’s 10th Annual God’s Country Off-Road Duathlon is a GO. Packet pickup and race day registration opens at 8:00am Sunday morning at the Lawrence River Trails.

Check back Saturday for possible bike course updates. The runs for our duathlon are not planned to change.

Thank you,

Chris Locke
