I am very sorry but No MMBA CPS race at Hanson Hills this weekend. If you would like a refund PLEASE let me know... as in the past I have issued refunds & will do as soon as I can IF requested.

These are very hard times with many events & months worth of prep work put on hold or just canceled outright. Some of our Cyclocross races annual dates are now being used/taken by misplaced spring events that will force Some additional cancellations in our fall program. But I feel we will still have a Cross season!

Like most small business the challenge of even monthy expences, keeping some cash flow just to maintain bills is always a challenge but never like in todays world.
I wanted to share a email I got over the weekend with a refreshing viewpoint that offered me reassurance in the cycling community. Thank you KS
"Good afternoon Brent.
Please do not refund my registration for the ILRA race 2020.
I primarily wanted to register as a sign of support in these unknown times.

Overall I know the amount is not very much, but I wanted to do something to show how your events have been meaningful to me since my first Fun Promotions race in 2003."

Ok my rant is over, I pray everyone is well and maintaining life...here to hoping July will bring some life back to all of us!

Trail crew was out clearing debris this morning. There are a few big trees still down, we are hopefully to have them removed in the next day or two. Beware of Ticks! ... See MoreSee Less
