The Mid Atlantic Super Series (MASS) Summer Sizzler scheduled for Sunday, July 8 has been cancelled. According to No Cents Racing, the event promoters, unauthorized construction of trails in environmentally sensitive areas raised concerns from the Gloucester County College administration that resulted in the race's cancellation. Of more immediate concern for the club is preserving any bike access to the trail system that has been built and maintained for many years. That access is now in jeopardy as a result of the unauthorized trails.

On a more positive note, a four hour enduro race has been added to the Iron Hill Challenge scheduled for August 25. The new race will count for points toward the Endurance Super Series and run in conjunction with the previously scheduled Cross Country Super Series races. Both events will count toward the Team Super Series competition, too. The enduro will feature four classes: Men's Open, Women's Open, Masters 45+, and Single Speed Open. Based on previous results in the series, it is likely that some of masters will try to score a clean sweep by competing for the overall win aboard single-speeds.
