We would like to extend our gratitude to all the people who have shown their support over the last couple of weeks as a result of the announcement of the unfortunate cancellation of the mountain bike World Cup and third annual Summer Session. The heartfelt support that we have received via e-mails, faxes and telephone calls from all over the globe – from racers, sponsors and the bike industry, has been very much appreciated.

We would also like to thank all the local riders, businesses and WORCA for their support over the past few years. In particular, a special thank you to the hundreds of individuals who have volunteered their time for all the events we have organized. Given our limited resources, these events could not have happened without their dedication and commitment to the sport of cycling.

And lastly, a very special salute goes out to our "core organizing group" of volunteers (you know who you are) who shared and supported our vision in obtaining a World Cup for Whistler. The contribution of their countless hours, as well as their expertise, was instrumental in TEAM's success in winning the bid for Whistler Resort.

We have enjoyed working with the community and we are disappointed that we will not have the opportunity to do so again. See you on the trails this spring – now we’ll actually have more time to ride!
