So I was looking at the MASS schedule and it does not mention the tour de tykes (danville) this year. Does anyone know if that race is still going on maybe separate from MASS?

I'm going to the MASS Team Captains Meeting at Bear Creek this weekend so I will try to find out what happened to it. I have a feeling the venue may have been lost :( Shame, cause that race was well suited for central PA'ers with all the climbing, the flatlanders suffered on it!

I asked about this at the MASS Team Captains meeting. Something changed with management at the hospital and they would not issue permits to the race promoter. The promoter is still trying to secure a new venue up there, but it will not be part of the MASS Series. Everyone at the meeting seemed sad about loosing this race, let's hope the venue can come back in the future!

Yeah that is too bad I enjoyed that event. No one else around me enjoyed it much but that is okay. I hope it comes back though..
