This weekend’s collegiate mtb races in Grand Junction are in limbo due to the federal government shutdown. According to a post on the Rocky Mountain Collegiate Cycling Conference website, Colorado Mesa University may have to cancel since two of the three events planned were to be held on Bureau of Land Management Property. Since the BLM is a federal agency and they are shutdown, the permits allowing them to host the race are null and void.  Depending on how long the shutdown lasts, the team will have to either postpone or cancel the races.  The initial decision will be made on Friday AM. 

The CSU Rams Cycling team is currently planing on attending the races.
