COS Racing is a 501(c)(3) Tax-Exempt Nonprofit Organization. We are a bicycle racing team. Our purpose is to foster local, national, and international amateur cycling racer development and competitions. As a team, we help develop road, MTB, track, and gravel bicycle racers through clinics and training. We support racer participation in local, national, and international racing events. We also host our own race annually, the Thunderbird Road race, the state road racing championships for juniors, seniors, and master amateur racers. In addition, we co-support the Front Range Classic, a collegiate race sponsored by the Air Force Academy Cycling Team. Ancillary to our racing endeavors, we volunteer at cycling events and cycling-related activities in our region.
While we have seen tremendous growth in the past four years, growing to over 90 team members strong, if upon dissolution of COS Racing and in keeping with 501(c)(3) requirements, our remaining assets will be distributed to cycling-related tax-exempt organizations, decided upon by the COS Racing Board of Directors.
