Salem, Oregon

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.

Every OBRA team needs to have at least one team member who is a trained

rules, and making things happen. Referees organize the race starts and
do the bulk of the communication with the riders.
