Straight from the HSP website

Truman's Big Love-POSTPONED

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 Sunday, June 22ND. Same time and location.

Stay tuned....Spoke Pony Showdown 3hr/6hr and 5k/10k trail run are just over two weeks away. Here's to sunshine, warm temps and windy conditions to get us back to dirt racing.

Well that sucks. But in a way I am happy. I really didn't want my first MTB ride of the year to be a race. I have no legs and my bike is still waiting on parts to complete it for the season. Some of the parts did arrive today. Tomorrow I will switch out my axles to make my hubs QR, drop the front rotor down to 160 (as it should have been all along) and tune it up. Not sure on what the wait is gonna be for my On-One fork. But I guess I have little choice but to wait.
Looks like this means Saturday I can ride myself into the ground with out having to worry about racing on Sunday.
Have a good weekend people, its almost upon us.
