Stazio was postponed, the Oredigger Classic was canceled, this isn't the first time Spring races have received a nasty blow my Mother Nature, historically Colorado Koppenberg commonly gets postponed due to weather. Yet when was the last time there were any road events that were canceled in late August due to weather? For many road racers if they can make it to Labor Day without burning out than that is the time "roadies" usually hang it up. Why is that? Why do we start so early and end early? I guess one logical reason is cyclocross starts up after Labor day and trying to complete against cross is bad cycling business. Is it? Road events compete against MTB events and Track events so why can't they overlap on CX events. With a few exceptions September's weather is near perfect for roadies. Plus with a season that starts in March means if you want to be competitive than you have to have your act together in January, JANUARY! And due to that cycling looses a lot of cyclists to skiing.
So why can't the entire road calendar shift by 1 month out?
