Statement from President and CEO Tom Osborne, Chairman of the Board of the Pikes Peak International Hill Climb regarding the 2012 Pikes Peak event.
“We are cautiously optimistic concerning the running of the 90th Pikes Peak International Hill Climb on July 8 after an informative and thorough meeting this morning with Mayor Steve Bach and officials from the City of Colorado Springs. We are in consistent touch with these officials, and monitoring the constantly-developing situation related to the wildfires.”
“We are grateful for the support of the City and for the efforts of the agencies involved in protecting our community from the fire. Our constant thoughts are with the hundreds of men and women who are in the air and on the ground giving us their best, and with our residents and neighbors.”
“In the meantime, our systems for the staging of the race and the ancillary events connected to it are fully operative.”
