Colorado Classic calls for volunteers at Breckenridge stage Aug. 11

Do you like bikes, bands and Colorado culture? Are you interested in helping return world-class professional cycling to Colorado? This August is your chance to be part of it all by volunteering for the Colorado Classic pro cycling tour from Aug. 10-13.

For four days, pro cyclists in the inaugural Colorado Classic men’s race will cover 313 miles (503.5 km) and endure more than 20,000 feet of intense, high-altitude climbing in four stages split between Colorado Springs, Breckenridge and Denver. The two-stage women’s Colorado Classic will be conducted on similar courses in Colorado Springs and Breckenridge Aug. 10-11.

The affiliated Velorama Colorado Festival from Aug. 11-13 features music acts, including Wilco, Death Cab for Cutie, Old 97’s and the Jayhawks, along with some of the world’s best cyclists and hundreds of vendors in a festival marketplace anchored by independent craft makers of beer, cider and wine in the RiNo Art District.

Volunteers opportunities exist for:

Course marshals, ambassadors, parking monitors and other responsibilities for stage one of the race in Colorado Springs on Aug. 10;

Course marshals, hospitality, green team, parking monitors and other responsibilities for stage two of the race in Breckenridge on Aug. 11;

Course marshals for stages three and four of the race in Denver Aug. 12-13;

Ambassadors, ancillary events, event safety, food and beverage, green team and parking for the three-day Velorama Colorado Festival in Denver Aug. 11-13.

Interested? Go online and file a volunteer profile. Race volunteers get up-close views of the action and receive special t-Shirts, snacks and drinks. In Denver, volunteers also receive access to the Velorama Colorado Festival on the day they work.
