Tour of the Battenkill organizer Anthem Sports will withdraw the race from the 2013 UCI America Tour calendar.

In a press release posted on the race’s website Wednesday, organizers said they planned to remove the one-day race from the international calendar “due to concerns over the their handling of recent doping scandals.”

According to the release, the April 13-14 race weekend will remain on the National Racing Calendar.

Race director Dieter Drake earlier Wednesday posted a photograph to Facebook of a bill from the UCI for €1,000 to license the 2013 event, under which he wrote, “Pass.”
