Littleton, Colorado October 23, 2014: The Colorado Bicycle Racing Association for Seniors (COBRAS) will be presenting the 2015 Karen Hornbostle Memorial Time Trial (KHMTT), a seven week bicycle race series at Cherry Creek State Park beginning in early April 2015. The COBRAS are returning to the role of sponsorship of this event after a several year hiatus.
Since 1991, the KHMTT has taken place Wednesday evenings in Cherry Creek State Park during April and May. The COBRAS are planning on a seven-week series with a makeup date in case of a cancellation due to unforeseen weather conditions.
“We are very excited about managing this event again” stated COBRAS president Greg Kelton “this has been our club’s premier event for years and construction at the park has been a challenge for the last two years. With the construction over, we will have the full course and smoother roads! The weather can be a bit unpredictable but that is what makes the KHMTT unique and challenging! Cherry Creek State Park provides a central, easily accessed location, and riding the same 10 mile route for seven successive weeks offers the racers the opportunity to test their abilities”.
The COBRAS are currently working with Cherry Creek State Park and with the Bicycle Racing Association of Colorado (BRAC) to finalize the dates and details. They expect to have the race series permit from USAC by early February.
The KHMTT series is a fundraiser for BRAC and the Cancer Fitness Institute in memory of Karen Hornbostel, a four-time master’s national road champion and recipient of the 2003 Lance Armstrong Spirit of Survivorship award.
The COBRAS were founded in 1993 and are focused on individuals 45 years or older who love the sport of cycling and who already race or are interested in learning to race. Membership is open to anyone who enjoys cycling whether they race or not and are at least 45 years old.
