ROSE CITY CRIT UPDATE
Many of you who attended this year’s annual meeting recall that club member Cameron Kohn was one of our guest speakers and spoke about his desire to bring bicycle racing back to downtown Jackson. Recently we received an email from Cameron with an update about the Rose City Crit. The text of Cam’s email is below:
A few months ago I was excited to announce that plans to revive the Rose City Criterium were being worked on (with plenty of George’s help!, thank you) for the summer of 2019 and I truly appreciate how much interest and support the CCC, P&T, and O2W has shown with this project. It is with mixed emotions that I have to inform you, and everyone else, that planning will have to be delayed and better focus be put on next year. In addition to an overwhelming amount of stress from trying to learn about and organize such a project, my family and I have been given an obstacle that requires much more attention to overcome.
That being said, I do not want to cut short the attention the race needs to make it as successful as it once was but, as I’m sure you can all understand, family comes first.
I assure you that this race will be brought back but 2019 will not be the year. Thank you for all of the expressed interest and support from the club and shops. I will reach out to you when plans are able to be better established.
We wish Cameron and his family every success in overcoming the obstacle to wish he refers in his email, and pledge our support when Cameron decides to bring bicycle racing back to Jackson.
