Cyclocross Nationals Cancelled Because of Mud Jan 11, 2015


… well, not because of mud, but because of damage to Zilker park and its trees.

Although USAC’s site says the races today are delayed, sources at the course have reported it’s cancelled due to damage to the park.

Straight out of an Onion article, the irony here is that music festivals like ACL and SxSW cause more damage to the parks here in Austin, expedite erosion and in general, thrash the town, yet a bike race in a small part of a park that no one uses gets shut down by Parks and Rec.

… or we can just say it’s cancelled because of mud. Check out a BTB TV report going live in a few.

Stay tuned on Twitter for news, because I’m going riding.

UPDATED: the race has been postponed for tomorrow at noon!
