Koppenberg Road Race – delayed start time
April 30, 2017
UPDATE: Plan B is we RACE, but we start 3hrs later on Sunday to allow the morning Colorado sun to work it’s magic on the south facing hill & dirt. Please check out the revised start times on the event website with the first race now starting at 11am. This move also has the added benefit for wave one with warmer racing conditions. Please be sure to follow our social media accounts for any last minute breaking details as we prepare for the storm.
The infamous Koppenberg Race, featuring the climb (17% grade), is the queen of the spring time cycling events in Colorado. This rustic setting sits next to, and incorporates parts of the Morgul Bismark Course. Boulder’s Spring Classic is set to make you suffer, and “the climb” is set to be the deciding factor once again.
The Koppenberg is a 5.5 mile road race circuit, with 300ft of elevation gain per lap, and includes 2 miles on a packed dirt road. Those who do well here are marked men and women at the King of the spring time cycling events, the Superior Morgul!
