The USCC East has cancelled the race tentatively scheduled for February 2, 2013. According to the series organizers, the original promoter has decided to back out of the race for this season. Given the short notice, organizers were unable to find a location that was willing and able to fill the spot.
“New York has proven to be a tough place in which to get an event secured,” says Erik Frigon, the head of the USCC East. “From what we have seen, the economy seems to be the greatest hurdle in securing a race there.
“We are disappointed that we aren’t able to get a solid site for a race in New York. We have a lot of good racers there and we would like to give them a ‘home race.’ We know New York has a lot of great places to hold a race, we just need to find one that is willing to pull it off and that will happen, it’s just going to take more work on our part.”
