Bib Placement and Pinning


Note: Cherry Creek State Park is requiring the timing vehicle to park in a designated place on the LEFT side of the road.


Bibs must be pinned on the LEFT side.


Important: The race number must be pinned correctly on the LEFT side. If the number is obstructed by hair, not pinned correctly, or otherwise hidden from the view of the spotter or timers, then you may not receive a time.

If the spotter or the Chief Judge cannot see your bib number, they cannot record your time.

  • Position on your jersey’s LEFT SIDE panel

    Correctly pinned bib

  • Insert one pin, align the bib based on your riding style then insert the remaining five pins
  • If someone is pinning your bib while you are wearing your jersey, be sure to lean forward into your aero position
  • Push the safety pin into the bib and jersey then back out of the jersey and bib so the pin lays flat against the bib (This will keep the bib from flapping in the wind)
  • Do not use the pre-punched holes instead, “flat-pin” it along its edges

​Do not crumple your bib! Some believe that the bib lies flatter and is more aerodynamic however there are two disadvantages:

  • The official Spotter at the finish line may not be able to read your number
  • A crumpled bib has more edges, and therefore more wind drag

Note: It is illegal to fold your bib and/or make it smaller

Personnel (and safety pins) will be available at the COBRAS tent in the Smoky Hill lot to help pin bibs.

Do not place your bib in the middle of your back!
