Dear Friends of Granogue Cross,
After a lot of deliberation and heartfelt introspection, we have decided to not host the Granogue Cross Weekend for 2012. Our team has worked tenaciously over the years promoting the Granogue Race as well ascyclocross in the general. We are very proud of the fruits of our labor, the growth of our event as well as the growth of cross in our region. That being said, the effort of putting on any race, let alone an event like Granogue Cross is not an easy undertaking. We have always been our toughest critics, and held ourselves to our own ridiculous standards. Our goal has always been to put on races that we would want to do. This spring we came to a realization that after of years of trying to better ourselves each year- it has taken a toll on our team. In short, we need a break. We need a year off.
We are keeping our options open for returning for 2013 and beyond.
We’d like to thank everyone who has supported us over the years- volunteers and racers.
Thanks to the volunteer army that makes it happen every year, often times sacrificing their results to support the event.
Thanks to the local bike shops, teams and companies that have supported us with swag, support and adult beverages.
Thanks to the racers that traveled from all over the country, heck the world, to come to our event and race with us.
Thank you for spreading the word of about our event. Your word of mouth has always been our best marketing.
You could have raced anywhere in the world, you chose to be with us, we appreciate that.
Best to you all.
