The Omnium

September 27, 2023 @ 7:00 pm - 9:30 pm

The Omnium – Presented by Ethic Creative Works

Join us for our final Wednesday night race and second pro race of the season!

Racing starts at 7:00 PM; gates open for riders at 5:00.
In-store for your pleasure is The Omnium – End of Season Velodrome Cup, a real fan and rider favorite.

The Omnium is a series of short to long races worth a set of points that accumulate throughout the night, leading into the final race of the evening, which is the Points Race. The points race is a race within a race, where riders race for points every ten laps that count toward your overall nightly points. The more points you have coming into the Points race, the better your chances for overall victory on the night. However, there are enough points on the line in the final Points Race that riders could easily jump way, way up the standings.
It can be a bit confusing to keep track of it all without the help of a good announcer; luckily, we have one, and he’ll keep you up to date, minute by minute, lap by lap, sprint by sprint of everyone’s points throughout the night while spinning some tunes to keep the energy high and you dancing in your seat.

Cost: The event is FREE for spectators and riders; your standard Season Pass or $35 for “men and women A’s racing”. (“A” riders, please get in touch with us if you plan to race The Omnium event, is by invite only and no day of registration.)

Food: We will be grilling out and will have plenty of Burgers, Hot Dogs, and Chips for sale. Or if you like, bring along a picnic basket to help offset our food and beverage choices. (No glass bottles, please)

Pets: Per ordinance, dogs are not allowed at the Velodrome.
