“This annual event is a Spring staple of our cycling community and brings visitors from all over the country,” said Shawn Spencer. “As the race director, this was a difficult decision, but we acted with an abundance of caution with the best interest of many communities in mind. Once the fog clears, we will start planning for 2021.”
“We support Shawn’s decision and look forward to having the event return next year,” said William Baggett, co-owner of the host venue, Blockade Runner Beach Resort. “Meanwhile, our sole focus is intensifying our efforts to provide a clean, safe, and enjoyable environment for our guests.”
