Had to cancel the race. Here is the email sent to all riders...
Unfortunately, as you already know, the race had to be abandoned.
Let me explain…
This was because of the bad weather specifically a landslide, standing water over potholes, grit, gravel and mud. Further, the landslide was next to an electricity power supply which is due emergency repair which could have been anytime during the day, even during the race. So there were just too many hazards. The Chief Commissaire and other officials drove the course twice this morning and after consulting with the LVCC officials (who had also surveyed the course) there was unanimous agreement that it would be wrong to conduct the race for obvious multiple safety reasons.
With respect to your fees, my understanding is that BC will provide a refund, but I will confirm that as soon as I can call BC which will be tomorrow morning.
Finally, I’m really sorry the race had to be cancelled but I trust you understand why. It’s the first time in the club’s history we have done that. I have attached pictures taken by the Commissaire so you can also see.
Yours in cycling
