It is unfortunate that race promoters can not stick to a classic date for their events. What happens when they keep moving their event date is that they will many times conflict with other races. Last year the Devils Slide conflicted with the Rockey Mountain Robeux and now this year the promoters Twin Rivers Cyclists will be in conflict with the Grizzley Man Adventure Race.
Tentatively we have scheduled Devil’s Slide for the 19th of April. That’s a Sunday as usual. We understand there are some conflicting events in Eastern Washington that day and will discuss at the next board meeting in January. Likely the date will stay unchanged. I think we may have already anticipated other conflicts and that day works best for us. We don’t have this firmed up with USA cycling yet, though.
