STEAMBOAT SPRINGS, COLORADO-September 1, 2020-Two days of road bike racing will again draw racers locally and from around the region for the 12th Annual Steamboat Stage Race. However, due to COVID-19 impacts, the race will see significant changes to adhere to special event, county and state public health protocols.
This year, the small scale event, capped at a total of 175 participants per current state outdoor event guidelines, offers two unique race stages that include an individual time trial on Saturday and road race on Sunday along with virtual registrations, awards and rider meetings. In addition, physical distancing measures and restrictions are in place at start/finish areas to limit contact.
With most of the event occurring outside city limits, motorists should be aware of racers on County Roads 27, 29 & 33 over the weekend as well as a Sunday morning and afternoon road closure for Critter Court. The routes and impacts are as follows:
The goal with this annual event, is to minimize rider/vehicle/resident encounters and road delays and run the race at off times when traffic is lower. This year, the event has developed a comprehensive COVID-19 mitigation protocol that includes the use of PPE, physical distancing, and no gatherings outside of active racing.
