LINCOLN, Neb. — The Capital City Criterium, which was scheduled for Sunday, has been canceled.
Race director John Lefler Jr., made the announcement on Monday that the race would not be held due to low early registration numbers and a number of other concerns. Full refunds will be issued to all of those who registered.
The race was designed to cap the inaugural Lincoln Industries Cycling Classic, a two-day event that features a gran fondo on Saturday. That event is still on and will feature 50- and 100-mile routes that tour the best roads in the Lincoln area. Additionally, riders will enjoy mechanical and nutritional support on the course, along with an afterparty and plenty of family-friendly events.
Registration for the gran fondo is open through this week, and closes at 4 p.m. Friday. For more information, click here.
