NEW DATE: Saturday May 1st, 2021
WEATHER UPDATE: We know many of you have been watching the weather very closely these past few days. Unfortunately, the expected snow totals have exceeded what we anticipated earlier in the week. Along with the snow accumulations, the rapid change in temperature also leaves us with concern of potential black ice on the course. As such, we are moving the NOCO Criterium to Saturday, May 1st.
I can't make the new May 1st date, what are my options? We know many of you are coming from out of state or have other things planned for this date. Please email and we'll respond with a few different options for your entry.
Will this weather impact Sunday's Cobb Lake Road Race? At this time, Cobb Lake is a go, and with Saturday calling for warmer temps and partially sunny skies, we expect things to be melted and safe riding conditions. The dirt section of the road is well treated with magnesium chloride to help prevent "soupy" mud conditions. Our staff will be in Ft. Collins on Saturday to scout the conditions, leaving no surprises come Sunday morning should the situation change.
Thank you again for all your support,
Lance and the entire Whiteline Cycling Staff
We couldn't be more excited to welcome a brand new racing track to the Colorado cycling scene. The Northern Colorado Law Enforcement Facility features a 1.1 mile loop course of butter smooth asphalt, with a wide-open concrete finish stretch that will have all racers maxing out your gear choice. This course isn't just for the speed demons, a number or crafted corners will test that early season acceleration in your legs. The track is professionally swept before race day to ensure the best possibly racing conditions to open up the racing year!
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 local 9Seventy Racing Crew for all their volunteer support
Note: The current capacity restrictions are based on CDPH Covid Dial "Level Yellow" and could change at any moment.
