Darkblade Systems to Sponsor 2018 State Road Race Championships Hosted by COS Racing

On 12 August 2018, COS Racing will host the Colorado State Senior & Junior Road Race Championships at the United States Air Force Academy.  Darkblade Systems Corporation will sponsor this year’s event. Darkblade systems is a Service-Disabled Veteran-Owned Small Business providing scientific, engineering, technical, operational support, and training services to Federal government and Commercial clients.

Last year’s event, which was the Colorado Masters State Championships, brought out approximately 400 racers to compete in over 15 categories.  Held on the US Air Force Academy, the race will take place on the same course as last year – an 8.8mile circuit around the USAFA, with approximately 750feet of climbing each lap.  More details will follow.

For more details on Darkblade Systems Corporation, please visit Darkblade Systems.

For more information on the event, see the Darkblade Systems Thunderbird Road Race website.

New USAFA Access Requirement for Late-Stayers

IMPORTANT!

We’ve just been informed that any non-Department of Defense (DoD) individuals over the age of 18 who expect to stay later than 5 PM on race-day need to complete the following online form. USAFA regulations require all non-DoD to vacate the base by 5PM, unless they have registered for a waiver.  This will most likely affect all Men’s Pro-1-2 racers and their guests, some spectators, USAC officials, vendors, and some volunteers.  Failure to complete the form may result in delays departing the base, apprehension, and may negatively impact our ability to continue to hold this event at the USAFA.  Please comply ASAP.  It’s painless.

Fossell Races to 9th and 11th at Cyclocross Nationals

On 11-13 January 2018, COS Racing rider Eric Fossell competed at the 2018 Cyclocross Nationals in Reno, Nevada. Eric raced in both the Men’s Singlespeed Championship and the Masters Men 35-39 race, achieving 9th and 11th place overall, respectively. The Singlespeed race took place at the Rancho San Rafael Park in Reno on a sunny Saturday with an impressive startlist of 135 elite singlespeed racers. According to Eric, “I gambled with a bigger gear and it paid off pretty well….Super happy to finish off the season with that race.” Not only did Eric achieve a national top-ten finish in men’s singlespeed, but he was also the first Colorado rider across the finish line from a tough field of Coloradans.  The Masters Men 35-39 race took place several days earlier on a windy Thursday morning.  After 45 minutes of brutal racing, Eric found himself on the wheel of the tenth-placed rider but unable to come around him during the final sprint – finishing 11th in a field of 35 elite masters racers.
