Batdorf & Bronson Velodrome Cup Race Flier

We've got the race flier loaded up for the third Pro Race Series event of the year, the Batdorf & Bronson Velodrome Cup. There are a multitude of new things for the A category in the event, and some of those are as follows:
1. Points Scoring: Points scoring for the omnium will be a modified international omnium format(we might dub it International DLV Omnium?). Points will score 15 places deep, with the winner of each event scoring 15pts, then 14pts for 2nd and 1 point steps till 15th place gets 1 point. All other finishers will receive zero points. NON FINISHERS of any event will be penalized 5 points.
2. New Events: There are a couple of new events that we'll be running as part of the omnium:
Reverse Snowball-Big points at the beginning, and points trailing off towards the end of the race.
3Lap "Merckx" TT - This will be actually 3 laps, not a kilo, and aero bars will not be allowed. All other "regular" aero equipment will be fair game, just no aero bars.

Most of the other events are regular events at the DLV, here is the full list:
1 Mercx 3 Lap TT
2 30 Lap Split Scratch
3 60 Lap Points Race
4 Flying 1 Lap TT
5 15 Lap Reverse Snowball
6 15 Lap Win and Out
7 Miss and Out
8 1 Mile Scratch

B and C category races will remain mostly unchanged for this upcoming event.
