BOISE, Idaho (April 10, 2020) — For the first time in 13 years, the LP 200 will have to reschedule from its spring date to the fall. Normally held the weekend after Memorial Day, the 200 mile cycling relay from Boise to Sun Valley, ID has been moved to September 19, 2020.
The LP 200 is among hundreds of events that have either been canceled or postponed due to the COVID-19 epidemic. The decision was made with the safety and health of all participants and staff in mind, and is backed by USA Cycling who has currently postponed all permitted events through May 31. All participants will have their entry moved to the new September 19th date or have the option of transferring to next year’s event.
Fortunately, there is a bright side to the change! The LP 200 has partnered with the Sawtooth Brewery in Ketchum, ID and will be finishing the event at their annual Oktoberfest. Participants will receive a custom finishers pint glass, a free beer and a delicious Bavarian meal. The festivities will include live entertainment and more than one beer to sample! And as usual, OmniGo! will provide real time results in the expo on a large screen and online.
