Severe erosion forces postponement of event

PICKERINGTON, Ohio (Sept. 17, 2003) -- AMA Pro Racing has confirmed the cancellation and postponement of the AMA Hillclimb event scheduled for Sept. 21 at Haydenville, Ohio. According to Rob King, AMA Pro Racing technical manager, severe rains have eroded the hillside to the point where underlying rock is exposed making it impossible to hold the race at this location.

"In speaking to Drew Wolfe of Action Sports, the event promoter, we realized we would not be able to adequately prepare the hill in time for the race," said King. "The base of the hill is essentially a mudslide at this time."

AMA Pro Racing and Action Sports are attempting to reschedule this event at another location. "With a couple of events left on the schedule and some open weekends we hope to hold this round yet this year," said King.

AMA Pro Racing will issue additional information as it becomes available.
