Pat Adams called us up this morning to let us know that Sleepless in the Saddle wouldn’t be going ahead in 2013. Despite talking to many sponsors (and with the ongoing support of Singletrack Magazine) and with the help of many behind the scenes people, including Gary Foord, Patrick said that he just couldn’t get the sponsors in place to guarantee the quality of event that riders come to expect from the big man.
So, with regret, Patrick is announcing that Sleepless is ‘taking a snooze for 2013, but will be back in 2014, better than ever’. Pat’s already in talks with major sponsors for next year, so we’re looking forward to seeing what he comes up with. Singletrack’s been a supporter of Pat’s events since there was a Singletrack (and it was Chipps that came up with the original Sleepless in the Saddle event name), so you can be sure of our support when it does go ahead next year.
In the meantime, that now gives you a free weekend in August! So… what are you going to do with it now?
