No Co-Motion Classic Tandem Race for 2011

With a tip of the hat to our friend Henry at NorthWest Tandem who called this to our attention, from the Co-Motion Website comes the following announcement…

Today (February 9th) we’re announcing that the race will not be held in 2011. While we’re saddened that we did not succeed in bringing more tandem racers to Eugene to participate, we’re proud of the quality of the races we put together here. Those who did participate have been known to gush that the level of competition was outstanding, and the camaraderie among the athletes was superb. To our sponsors, our volunteers and race staff as well as all who came to test their mettle, thank you so much. We thoroughly enjoyed getting to know you all, and always looked forward to seeing you each year.

Do not despair, we’re working on a brand new event!

That’s right! Although an annual tandem race did not prove to be the kind of event we had envisioned, we hope to bring all of our tandem racing friends and more cyclists of all kinds to Eugene for another kind of event.

Details for our new non racing event to be announced before the end of February!

As you can imagine, we eagerly await news of the new, non-racing event that Co-Motion will be sponsoring in the future.


About TG

I've been around a bit and done a few things, have a couple kids and a few grandkids. I tend to be curmudgeonly, matter-of-fact and not predisposed to self-serving chit-chat. Thankfully, my wife's as nice as can be otherwise we'd have no friends. My interests are somewhat eclectic, but whose aren't?
