Herne Hill omnium format
edited April 2011
Does anyone knw what events and distances are used in the Herne Hill spring omnium series starting this week? Will there be two divisions?
Too late to help you this time round but a similar format will be used for the Open Meetings (Next one 7th May) and the Autumn Omniums, also the evening track league. They split you into As and Bs, you get to choose unless someone complains! The As do a 12 lap scratch, 3 lap dash heats/final, 12 lap points race and a devil. The Bs do the same but at 10 laps. At the end there's an open 20km scratch. Sometimes the 3 lap dash changes to say a flying 200mts or even a Keirin etc the organisers will try to vary it a bit. Some meetings have specific events on top such as the Brixton Madison meeting and the Roadmans 25mile. Tomorrow, albeit just for show, we're doing a team pursuit!
