That sucks! I had a pass to go, and Tuna Canyon is only about 20 minutes from my house. I was really looking forward to going...

Towing the party line.
It's not the bicycles. It's the spectators, media, personel and riders who will be smoking, laying lenses and glasses around and shuttle trucks with hot exhaust idling in the scrub.

It is extremely dry out there right now. I don’t think we’ve had any measurable rain since April.

I think that the fire department has concerns about having so many people up there. If a fire did start it would be hard to evacuate and it would tie up a road they might need to use as access to fight a fire. I know that was a problem during last year’s Chatsworth fire, the fire department had a hard time getting their trucks up some of the canyons, because people were parked on the side of the road.

This year, whenever there is a “red flag” warning issued, it is against the law to park on any canyon road.

It’s disappointing, but I can understand why it was cancelled. Last year's fire was no joke!

there's a couple of long twisting road descents around here that would be perfect for a back up venue.

Yeah I heard that too. I heard they all got shipped to one house on the north side of Lake Tahoe.
My sh1t is stocked son. Only the finest silk. My suits are both aerodynamic and sexy. You can try them on when you get here.

No china crap in my pad.
