This decision was based on the fact that the City’s finance structure will not allow us to retain any monies generated by the races to go back specifically into cycling and Valmont City Park. By Chris running the races, any money generated can be earmarked for whatever he chooses.
I worked with him to reduce the rates to as low as we could ($910 for hosting multiple races), but he made the decision to not pursue the races this year. Read more
