THE Manning Great Lakes Tip Riders Mountain Bike Club, have made the hard decision to cancel the PBM Hardrock 6 hour race due to the uncertainty of current lockdowns and restrictions.
The event had already been postponed once, from Sunday August 22 to Sunday October 10, due to increased COVID-19 restrictions in the state.
"This was a hard decision but the safety of our members and community is paramount and we wanted to also make sure that riders have time to change their travel plans far enough in advance,'' tip riders representative Bruce Pain said.
"A big shout out to Pacific Blue Metal and all our sponsors for their continued patients and support. We plan to hold the 6 hour on Sunday August 21 2022. Please add this to your diaries, as we plan to be back bigger and better.''
Mr Pain added the club plans to hold a 3 hour club race once COVID settles down.
