Local Race CANCELLED!!!

Well there were a couple of us who had thought of going to Greenville, SC this weekend to do a couple of their Spring Training Series races. After watching the forecast for several days we decided it wasn't worth it to drive 5 hours to race in the rain, or whatever else they may have ended up with. Instead we decided to stay in town and do race #2 of the local Winter Training races.

Well low and behold we awoke this morning to snow here in Alabama, may end up with 4-5". It appeared to not be affecting the roads so we were "hopeful" the race would go on. Well about 30 minutes ago we got the word that today's races are CANCELLED. I have no desire to go for a "ride" in this crap but was looking forward to the race. Oh well I guess it will be a rest day...

During the collegiate racing season, Bloomsburg University always had the first race of the season in our area (PA / Eastern Collegiate). For three years in a row, it snowed on the way to the race, and the university had to plow the course before we could start.
