Cobb Lake Road Race
April 18th, 2021
Registration for the Cobb Lake Road Race opened yesterday. Due to COVID restrictions, field sizes are extremely limited and are filling up. If officials loosen restrictions, more spots may be added. Stay tuned for NoCo Criterium information to drop soon.
From the promoter:
For 2021 due to COVID-19 the CSU Cycling Team is working in tandem with the White Line Cycling Staff to produce the annual Cobb Lake Road Race. This northern race has quickly grown to become a staple on the spring calendar.
The Cobb Lake course is a 7.8 mile loop featuring .75 miles of hard-packed gravel, with an uphill finish on asphalt. Due to current COVID restrictions, each category will be limited to just 25 athletes and is pre-registration only so don't delay. A full COVID-19 mitigation plan "safe & responsible racing" will be e-mailed to all registered athletes on the Friday prior to race weekend.
Big thank you to the CSU Cycling Team and local 9Seventy Racing Crew for all their volunteer support

Racer Categories and Racer Checklist
You're all set to race, but still have a few questions on what to expect race morning. You're either brand new to the sport, or have raced a few times over the years, but it's still great to go through a quick check list as every race is a bit different in each state.
I PRE-REGISTERED, WHAT DO I NEED TO DO NOW?
1. Please double check your category start time and even though you're pre-registered you need to pick up your number a minimum of 40 min before your race start.
2. Once you arrive on site at the race venue please find the registration truck (looks like a mobile food truck) and jump in the left hand line that says pre-registered. You do not need to fill out another waiver.
3. Have a photo ID handy - you don't need your USAC license at this point. Show your ID to the White Line Staff Member in the window and she'll hand you a form to sign and return, and your number.
4. Ask what side the number goes on (left or right)
5. 10min before your start time start hanging out near the start line and the officials will start organizing your group
6. GO RACE, have fun, and after you finish check out your results by the podium
