Looking for 2015 Koppenberg?

The Colorado Koppenberg Race is the queen of the spring time cycling events in Colorado. This rustic setting sits next to the famous Morgul Bismark Hill and makes for a very idealic Colorado race. Plagued by the evils of Mother Nature the dependability of the race is usually in question. Many racers set this as a goal for the year and some travel great distances to complete in this unique one-of-a-kind dirt race with a classic redneck version of the European Koppenberg Hill. Those who do well here are marked men at the King of the spring time cycling event, the Boulder Roubaix

Course Description:
The race is road cycling event with dirt road sections modeled after the infamous European Roubaix race. The 5.5 mile loop consists of a 2.5 mile dirt section that ends with a short but very steep hill. The 200 meter long "Koppenburg" hill has a 17% slope and takes its namesake from the legendary hill in the Tour of Flanders hill in the Tour of Flanders. The remainder of the course is rolling paved road. There are no dirt downhill sections and the entire course is rideable on a road bike which makes for a very safe course. For years the race has been promoted by Boulder Racing the same people who put on other great Colorado road and cyclocross events. The race is named after the famous Koppenberg.

    1-2 numbers are going to be WAY low already because the Gila is that weekend.
    I was thinking it would be a good race to combine the 1-2s and 35+ 1-2s.

    hart team was talking separate cat 2s a few years ago, but never did it at their own crit. Not enough Senor racers o make it work....
