Rumble at 18 Road Rescheduled to May 2-3, 2015

April 17, 2015 – The Rumble at 18 Road, a cross-country mountain bike race scheduled to be held in Grand Junction, CO on April 18-19, has been rescheduled to May 2-3, 2015 due to poor weather and a muddy course. The organizer, John Klish of Mad Racing Colorado sent out the following statement:

The weather is still not cooperating… Snowing up here at the 18 Road area. Road is sloppy wet, and lots of pools on trails. Highly doubt it will dry by tmw or even Sunday per forecast. I would rather preserve trails and your energy/bikes for this race so I'm postponing to May 2-3 weekend. More details and pictures to follow, have things to address now. Your patience and understanding is appreciated…
