The Bob Cook Memorial Mt. Evans Hill climb is an iconic bicycle race that takes place on the highest paved road in the United States.  Celebrating it’s 50th year, it was run for the first time in 1962 and has run consecutively with the exception of 3 times.

It was renamed in 1981 in honor of five-time race winner Bob Cook, who died of cancer at the age of 23.
