|A message from the Idaho League Director:|
We’ve spent a lot of time over the past couple days on the phone talking with league/NICA leadership as well as the management team at Bogus Basin. Unfortunately the decision has been made to cancel the state championship race this weekend. While this is a very sad and disappointing decision to communicate, when weighed against our obligation to keep students, parents, coaches, spectators, volunteers and staff safe, it was not difficult to make the right choice. We just can’t risk having people out there in the conditions that are forecast for Friday and Saturday at Bogus Basin.
Over the past 24-hours we have looked at alternate venues to see if moving to a lower elevation location would be feasible. Unfortunately after careful consideration it has been determined that relocating on such short notice is not an option.
We’ve also evaluated if rescheduling to next weekend is an option. There are many reasons that this is also not viable and has also been ruled out.
At the end of the day after evaluating all our options, it has been determined that we must implement the cancellation plan that was communicated to the league last night (HERE).
We realize this is a disappointment to everyone involved in our league but we hope you understand why this decision had to be made. Additional details have been communicated to all Team Directors and we will be working directly with them to calculate the season overall results and sending out awards for all the racers.
Plans are already in the works for an even better 2018 season and we look forward to seeing everyone out on the trails between now and then. Thank you for everything you do in supporting our mission to get more kids on bikes.
