EVENT UPDATE 6/5/20
The 55thAnnual Bob Cook Memorial Mt. Evans Hill Climb, Colorado State Championship Hill Climb, has been cancelled this year due to extenuating circumstances surrounding COVID-19. The Mt. Evans road, Hwy 5, will remain closed this year leaving us without emergency and official vehicle support for the race. We are just as disappointed as you, as this is a historical event that draws racers from all over the country to experience the challenge of racing on the highest paved road in the United States, at 14,130 feet above sea level.
Thank you for your support, we appreciate your understanding and look forward to seeing you next year!

We are proud to be part of the Gran Fondo National Series
About the Gran Fondo National Series
A Gran Fondo is a cycling challenge that takes bicycle racing to the next level. Part personal challenge, part serious competition, the Gran Fondo National Series courses lead riders through country roads with challenging climbs and incredible scenery. Courses are offered in lengths of ~30, ~60, and ~100 miles so participants can take part in a distance that matches their goals and ability. Each rider is assigned an electronic timing-chip to keep track of their progress throughout the course and to allow riders to compete for best time through highlighted sections of the course. There is no start to finish time as in traditional racing formats, but rather only time sections count toward a rider’s competition time. This means you can take your time between race sections, stop at the aid stations, and regroup to enjoy the ride with your friend and teammates. At the finish a hot meal and beverage awaits you, as well as finisher medals for the gran route finishers. Whether riding for a cause, a personal goal, or for competition, the Gran Fondo National Series courses are some of the most beautiful courses in the North America.
