April 3, 2020 – The Wild Horse Dirt Fondo, originally scheduled for April 25, 2020 in Grantsville, Utah, has been postponed indefinitely due to issue arising from the coronavirus crisis. It may be rescheduled, but at this point in time, it is postponed indefinitely. The ride had already closed registration a few weeks ago in response to the Governor's order to limit gathering size. The event has been a mainstay on the spring ride calendar for several years.

Organizer Chris Magerl said in a statement:
The Wild Horse is not going to happen as scheduled on April 25, 2020.
Quick Release Racing is unsure if The Wild Horse will try to reschedule for the autumn. October or early November is a sweet time to ride that loop, but every time we have asked participants in years past if they were interested in the event moving to the autumn, the answer was an overwhelming no. The event calendar in Utah is so crowded in October, with a high school MTB race and a Utah Cyclocross Series race every Saturday. Almost all of The Wild Horse course volunteers are high school MTB folks, and probably half of The Wild Horse participants race CX. This is not a normal year, so perhaps there will be an autumn edition of The Wild Horse. But for now, we can't commit to that.
Stay safe. Hope to see you out there again some time.
