A lack of sponsorship dollars and last-minute unexpected costs have forced organizers to cancel this year's Steveston Sockeye Spin bicycle race.

Scheduled for Sunday, July 31, organizers at the Steveston Community Society pulled the plug on the event this week.

"The Society would like to thank those sponsors who had already committed to supporting the event this year, and also the volunteers who have invested time in planning the 2011 race to date," the society said in a press release.

But organizers are hoping good fortune will come next year.

"Hopefully we can bring this exciting event back to Steveston for the summer of 2012, with the support of our community."

The race made its debut last summer.
