Due to large sections of Willoughby’s Todd Field being under 8-10 inches of water, the Cross My Heart and Hope to Die Willoughby Cyclocross Spectacular race scheduled for Sunday, October 16, 2011 has been cancelled.
Race promoters are in agreement that if there is no way to route a course so that it can be competitive, safe and make a reasonable impact on the land, the event needs to be cancelled or postponed. No doubt a flooded course meets these criteria.
No official word on rescheduling of Willoughby CX yet but Greg Jackson of Spin said he will talk to the city of Willoughby on Monday to see if the other Spin race date (Nov. 13, scheduled as Wendy Park CX-2) can be used as the new Willoughby event date.
See you all at Blue Sky (or Not!) II CX in Euclid next week. Please note the new location – it is NOT the same as last year’s Blue Sky event!
