Cyclocross leader eyes move to Salem

(Continued)

As to post-race conditions, “we have identified a few ruts in the (Sam Parisi baseball field) outeld that require attention,” the January report states. “However, our measurements show that the majority of the track is as smooth as the unused portions of the field.”

Verga said he was contacted by officials in Salem to better understand the effects of the race. If the Gran Prix moves to Salem, it would be the first bike race hosted at Salem Willows, according to parks and recreation superintendent Partanen.

In Gloucester, Boudreau met with the Special Event Advisory Committee in May, and more recently met with a number of officials during a site visit of Stage Fort Park. But race organizers have not yet approached the Council’s Planning and Development subcommittee about holding the event in Gloucester.

“In the race’s 14 years, we have strived to be mindful, cooperative community partners and are dedicated to building upon the relationship with the city,” Boudreau’s email states. “However, if the Gloucester venue is not a viable location, we will be forced to seek an alternative site that meets the standards that racers have come to expect from this event.”
