With the USGP Series cancellation announced back in April, promoters of the four race weekends have been scrambling to secure funding for their races. Today, the Fort Collins race announced that they would have to cancel the race this year due to a lack of funding. With Nationals to take place in Boulder, the Colorado ’cross scene will still be thriving, but racers who had Fort Collins penciled into their schedules should start looking for different venues mid-October.

Stay tuned for more info, and check out our overview of the USGP situation, and recent interviews with the promoters of the former USGP races in Madison, Bend and Louisville.

Deschutes Brewery Cup in Bend is alive and well. Saturday, Dec. 7th. Followed by a big $ non UCI race on Sunday Dec. 8th.

Or perhaps less "support" from USAC and more support from organizations like OBRA.

Too bad. Seems like they could have set up a kickstarter campaign and given the community a chance to fund the race or a portion of it. If the community showed support, if dollars started flowing in, the story you are pitching to potential sponsors completely shifts.

By "more" I assume you mean "any." UCI race overhead is very substantial, and goes way beyond payouts.

I posted a link to this on New Belgium's FB page, asking for help. Maybe if a lot of us do, maybe they'll help...maybe?

The brewery capital couldn't get funding?!?! This is disappointing. Step up new Belgium or Odell!

What is happening to American Cyclocross? Do race promoters need more support from USAC?
