OBRA Officials Training, 2014
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 break-out sessions, you will learn the basic skills need to officiate at OBRA events.
Every OBRA team needs to have at least one team member who is a trained official.
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.
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, road races, and mountain bike events).
