Description:
The Cobb Lake road race will start from the event parking lot at Anheuser-Busch. This location serves as the main event parking area and will contain the restrooms, registration, and other services pertaining to the event. The official finish of the event is within the Hill community of Cobb Lake, approximately one mile within Taliesin Way. This location will contain the finishing equipment, restrooms, and other items pertaining to the event.
The event will follow a strict schedule in which multiple fields will be on course at a given time. There will be four heats of races throughout the day.

Each field will start their respective race from Anheuser-Busch. They will be lead out by a lead moto who will start on County Road 52 / Richard’s Lake Rd. The field will neutrally ride from the starting area onto and over CR-52, which crosses over I-25. After crossing, the field will remain neutral while taking two right turns which ultimately brings the riders onto the Frontage Rd. Once the field has fully made it onto the Frontage Rd, the race will begin.

Pertaining to the initial neutral rollout, we are hoping to have more safety precautions in place to help stop traffic when riders are entering County Road 52 / Richard’s Lake Rd. (Larimer County Sheriff will be there to offer support in leading the moto / doing what is necessary.) This is only required for the few minutes that it will take for each field to perform this neutral rollout. The times of each field’s start time are listed here:

Heat 1: 8:00 / 8:05 / 8:10
Heat 2: 10:00 / 10:05 / 10:10
Heat 3: 1:00 / 1:05 / 1:10
Heat 4: 4:00 / 4:05 / 4:10

The roads that will be affected by the race include Larimer County Road (CR)-52, Frontage Road, CR-56 and Taliesin Way. Secondarily the roads intersecting these within the circuit these roads form include: CR-54, Robbie Court, Tirranna Court and Wingspread Court. Additionally, the entrance to the Mountain Vista golf course will be secondarily affected. Traffic mitigation includes placing 1-3 individuals at each intersection or high traffic access point (i.e. the golf course entrance). These flaggers will traffic as the racers approach, hold traffic as they pass, and release traffic after a safe distance is achieved.
Once on Frontage Rd., the race will then travel north before taking a right on County Road 56. The race will then proceed to take a right turn on Taliesin Way, riding through the Cobb Lake community. Once exiting the community, the race will take another right on Country Rd 52. The riders will then enter back onto Frontage Rd.

The only areas that seem slightly complicated are the neutral rollout and the entrance back onto Frontage Rd. from CR 52.

Certified Flaggers will be positioned in four high traffic intersections; CR-52 and Taliesin Way, the left turn off of CR-52, CR-52 and the Frontage Road, and CR-56 and the Frontage Road. Their duties will be to temporarily stop traffic as racers come through the intersection and send vehicles through when safe. There will also be course marshalls stationed at lower traffic intersections along the course. At all points along the course riders will be instructed to remain in the right lane and all racers not in the main group will be required to follow the rules of the road (i.e. remaining as far right as possible). These riders will still have safe passage through each intersection as traffic is controlled by the officer and flaggers. A Larimer County Officer will be onsite during race hours (8am-6pm) and stationed just south intersection of CR-52 and Frontage Road to help encourage traffic to slow and be looking for riders.

Onsite Property Management has approved the use of their road infrastructure during the requested event times of 8am-6pm. The gates at either end of Taliesin Way will be propped open and remain open during the event.

Parking for the event has will take place at Anheuser-Busch on Busch Dr. and CR 52. This events parking lot will serve as the base of operations for the event. Restrooms will be located at this location, provided by a sanitation company.

Signage informing area residents will be place on all each of the 4 primary roads (CR-52, CR-56, Frontage Road and Taliesin Way). These signs will be on ~3’x3’ construction orange bases informing the reader of the event, its time and date and placed one week prior to the event.

The applicants understand that over the 7.8 mile course they will transfer between County paved surfaces, to County un-paved surfaces to Private paved surfaces. The applicants understand the condition of the un-paved surface can change with weather conditions.
