Join our team!
We are pleased to announce an upcoming OBRA officials training for new and novice officials. If you have ever thought about becoming a cycling official, now is your opportunity to get introductory training. We will be covering core material as well as material specific to referees and judges. Through both classroom instruction and an break-out sessions, you will learn the basic skills need to officiate at OBRA events. This year, we will also be adding basic equipment reviews and training for mountain bike race officials.
Every OBRA team needs to have at least one team member who is a trained official. OBRA Officials Training. We will be focused on training officials to work road and mountain events. This will prepare officials to work road races, stage races (criterium, time trials, and road races).
Who is a Referee?
A referee is the person in the car following the racers, enforcing rules, and making things happen. Referees organize the race starts and do the bulk of the communication with the riders.
Who is a Judge?
A judge is the person at the finish-line. They are responsible for tracking and placing riders, scoring, timing, generating and posting results.
The officials training will be held on February 2nd at the Kroc Center in Salem, Oregon. If you are interested in becoming an official register today! http://obra.org/events/21520/register There is no cost to attend. Here is the tentative schedule for the day:
