Highland Lake Race CANCELLED

We are sad to report that due to unforseen misalignments with the host municipality, the Holland Beach race, scheduled for May 31/June 1 on Highland Lake is officially cancelled. While it saddens us to have to cancel this event, we are working hard on another venue which will prove extremely exciting. Please accept our most deep apologies for this change to the schedule, Highland was highly anticipated and the change is a disappointing one. Check back soon for more information on our supplemental Connecticut race!
