The 2020 Stages Cycling Lutsen 99er is officially cancelled.
We regret to inform you that Visit Cook County (VCC) and its board of directors has canceled the Lutsen 99er scheduled for June 27, 2020.
Visit Cook County wanted to relay this message with their thoughts about this year’s race and cancellation decision:
“From 80 riders in its inaugural year to nearly 1800 riders a quick nine years later, the 99er has become part of the Cook County fabric. Our community is proud to be associated with this event – our amazing volunteers, local folks lining back roads cheering riders and the family of riders that joins us every year.
Because of what this event brings to our community, the decision to cancel was difficult. On the other-hand, we believe this is the right decision in light of our rural community, our razor thin medical resources and yet uncertainties and unknowns that remain with this pandemic and the gathering of many people.
We look forward to hosting the event June 26, 2021.”
