I know you were all looking forward to The Celtic Cross, so it’s with a heavy heart I repost this message I got from Matt:

We spent an hour and a half trying to make the course work. We took multiple test rides and determined we need to postpone the race. The snow is way too thick. We’re thinking late March or even sometime in April would be safer. Stay tuned for updates. Sorry it didn’t workout!

That just gives you more time to get your bikes polished.

Really quite well. See how well on the Iron City blog.
