2021 Telluride 100 Covid19 Plan

June 30, 2021 1am - August 1, 2021 9pm

The Telluride 100 Mtn. Bike Race has put together a plan that will promote distancing/use of PPE/sanitization in order to keep everyone safe.

We are looking at COVID19 state and county data and process changes on a daily basis, and also coordinating with our local government entities to adopt best practices and adhere to safety promulgations. As of June 30th 2021, San Miguel County is at 75% fully vaccinated and will be above 85% by race date.

Face coverings are currently only required in San Miguel County/Telluride while riding public transportation, in all medical facilities, in schools, or in a public space if a person has not been fully vaccinated. We will continue to monitor the county and state guidelines, and make changes to this plan as needed.

Deferral to 2022:

Anyone that has tested positive for COVID-19 within 14 days of the event, will be given a registration deferral to the 2022 T100 race.

Symptom Waiver:

A written waiver will be presented to the participant at packet pickup, noting that the participant needs to have been symptom free 14 days prior to the event. Participants will provide a verbal response to this waiver.

Racer Meeting:

Pre-event meeting for participants will move to a virtual format and be made available to view online.

Online event waiver signature:

USA Cycling moved to an electronic waiver signature format in BikeReg. There is no longer a need for the participant to touch a pen & paper. This new process speeds up the racer check-in process.

Number plate/Goodie Bag pickup:

We will schedule this so that only one participant picks up a number plate/goodie bag at a time. Race staff handling this process will follow San Miguel County COVID19 guidelines at the time of the event.

Event Start:

Participants will need to wear a face covering while staging for the race, until one minute prior to their group's start. A race official will let racers know when they are at one minute to race start.

6:00 AM UCI Elite/Open Women & Men.

6:03 AM All others.

Podium Ceremony:

Begins at 1:00PM for 50 mile

Begins at 7PM for the 100 mile

Podiums will be placed 6 feet apart and we require that a face covering be worn during this process.

Race staff will have extra coverings on hand in case someone does not have one.
