History

The Mt. Evans Hill climb is a bicycle race that takes place on Mount Evans, Colorado. It was run for the first time in 1962. The race was renamed in 1981 in honor of five-time race winner Bob Cook, who died of cancer at the age of 23. The climb is a little over 27 miles.

The race takes place on the highest paved road in the United States. The race starts at 7,540 feet in Idaho Springs, Colorado and proceeds to Echo Lake where the race turns and climbs nearly to the summit (14,130 feet).

An average of 600-1,000 riders compete each year.

The present Men's record holder is Tom Danielson, set in 2004 with a time of 1:41:20. The Women's course record is held by Jeannie Longo from France with a time of 1:59:19.
