Annual Team Membership Meeting: 13 December!

The COS Racing Team meeting will take place on 13 December at 6PM at sponsor Trails End’s location in Old Colorado City.

This year’s meeting will be a forum to gather with fellow team members and prospective members, learn about new opportunities and plans for the upcoming race year, and try on this year’s kit from our new kit sponsor Pactimo.

It’s going to be another stellar race season in Colorado, so jump on board for some great experiences. If you are on the fence about bringing your riding and racing to the next level, attend this meeting to meet a great group of like-minded riders and learn about the riding, racing, and coached experiences you can have on this team.

Sincerely,

COS Racing

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.

Ancillary to our racing endeavors, we volunteer at cycling events and cycling-related activities in our region.

COS Racing Masters Excel in Colorado State Team Cup

COLORADO SPRINGS – In this year’s Bicycle Racing Association of Colorado (BRAC) Colorado Road Team Cup, COS Racing achieved some excellent team results – placing 2nd, 3rd, 6th, and 9th at the state level in various categories. 

At the top of the pyramid, COS Racing took second place in the state in Masters Men’s Category 4 (40+), just behind Primal – Audi Denver and ahead of nine other teams.  Consistent top-3 finishes by Aaron Sudduth and Andrew McAdoo contributed enormously to these results. Sudduth notably took three wins plus an additional three top-five finishes; McAdoo won the Fountain Omnium, while racers Ray Decker, Brian McCall, and Tony Nelson contributed to these results.

COS Racing took third place in Masters Men’s Category 4 (50+) out of eleven teams in what appeared to be one of Colorado’s hardest-fought competitions.  Four COS Racing Masters racers – Ron Budhi, Michael Elmer, Erik Hartel, and George York – took to the start line over 64 times during the season, amassing three race wins, one sweep of the podium at the Fountain Festival, and a further twelve top-five finishes.  Consistency was also the key, with racers in this category placing in the top-10 47-times.  COS Racing was narrowly beaten out for the top prize by two strong Denver-based teams – RacerX Racing and Palomares

In the final two categories, Men’s Category 3 and Masters Men’s 60+, COS Racing placed 6th and 9th, respectively, with solid performances from Matt Bell, Vladimir Dragomirov, and Tracy Sharples.
