40 in the Fort - Postponed
June 25, 2012
After much discussion, Overland Mountain Bike Club will postpone the 2nd annual 40 in the Fort mountain bike endurance race due to the High Park fire.
This has not been an easy decision to make, but at this time, we feel it is in the best interest of our volunteers, our racers and the community at-large to move the race to our back-up date of September 15.
We would like to thank our sponsors, Poudre Valley Hospital, Green Team Real Estate, ProVelo Bikes, Niner Bikes, Lee's Cyclery and Full Cycle for supporting this decision.
We would also like to thank Lory State Park and Larimer County for their efforts and guidance. We know these past few weeks have put an extra strain on them.
Why did we make this decision?
- Both Horsetooth Mountain and Lory State Park remain closed. Access to these parks may or may not be available depending on the behavior of the fire.
- The fire will still be burning on July 7 without Mother Nature stepping in. Even if the fire continues to burn farther west, a shift in winds could create an unhealthy environment for everyone involved on race day.
- We are two weeks out from the event. Everyone involved needs to have time to update/change plans as needed.
