Road Races in Colorado

Hello all,

I am moving to Colorado in February, and trying to figure out a tentitive racing schedule. I have had little to no luck finding any races online. I was hoping that you might be able to recommend some races, or some websites with a calender.

Best,
John

John -

Most racing in Colorado is run by the American Cycling Association - http://www.americancycling.org/ - their web site has a ton of information. The UCSF does a little bit and I've heard they plan to do more. Denver Bicycle Couriers puts on an early season series as well, their web site (not updated for 2007) is located at: http://dbcevents.com/

What Cat do you race in?

Hoff,

Thanks for the info. I currently race Cat 4, with hopes of an upgrade next season. Are there any races that are not to be missed?

Thanks,
John

Depends on what you like. There are lots of good races of all types: crits, road races, hill climbs (road races that are all climbing), time trials, etc.

I like the Longmont Crit and the Boulder Beer Road Race. Boulder Roubaix and the Koppenberg Circuit Race are fun to, they involve some riding on dirt w/ our local equivalent of cobbles, e.g. washboard roads.
