2008 Iron Horse Road Race Canceled

Its official, the 2008 Iron Horse Road Race and Citizens tour has been canceled due to incliment weather conditions. Temperatures at 32F and rain in town (at 6500 feet) translates to about 10F and 6 inches of snow at 10,640 feet (top of Coal Bank pass).

With over 2500 participants and only a small % with the gear to ride in such conditions, Iron Horse race promoters would have a small natural disaster on their hands if they let the race go.
