Tysons Corner Circuit Race cancelled

We received the following message originally sent by Bill Luecke, VP of National Capital Velo Club stating that the circuit race planned for April 4 in Tysons has been canceled. We had heard there was a race in Tysons in the past but didn't realize one was planned this year. It's unfortunate an agreement to use the planned route couldn't be reached:
I regret to inform you that NCVC has decided to cancel the 2011 Tysons Corner Circuit Race, originally scheduled for April 3.

Despite extensive work in November and December by former NCVC president and newest life-member Myron Lehtman, we were unable to secure access to the parking areas that we have used since 2004 or to meet with the current or potential new owners of the commercial properties that surround the course. Maintaining good relations with the affected property owners is key to ensuring that an event can return year after year.

We explored another possible venue, but we have been unable to secure a firm commitment to an open date on the April MABRA calendar. Not enough time remains between now and early April to ensure a quality event.

We hope to return to the course in 2012
