It is sad to see that the Blacksburg Cycling Classic had to be canceled because of lack of participation. As a promoter I know those guys spent thousands of hours developing the road course, time trial and crit. All the effort ended up in a low turnout and consequential canceling of the event.
I'll be the first to say that I did not sign up for it. I had requested the weekend off from work early with anticipation of trying to go for the weekend. That is when I realized the state crit and TT were the same weekend in Richmond. How did this happen?
In a market as small as Virginia, how do two promoters book events on the same weekend. We can't do that. It is not fair to the promoters or to the racers. So here's my question:
Who treaded on who? I don't remember which one was sceduled first.
