Here is all the final information for the Campione Cycles MayDays Competition May 1-3
Campione Cycles has signed on the main event sponsor and will be helping the Burnaby Velodrome with the prize money for the Open Sprint, A men's, and Women's Omniums. Equal prize money wil be given out to all three events. We would like to thank the family owned Campione Cycles for their support.
This event is open to all sprinters. My earlier comments regarding qualifying with a 200m time of 12.49s is more of a suggestion to the riders out there as we would like this Omnium to be an exciting and fast event. For riders who go slower than a 12.49 you might be in over your head but if you feel up to the challenge then please come out and participate. Of course the event is open to women sprinters but you will be competing with the men, so come ready to flex your muscles. The event will be made up of;
Chariot Races on Friday night (half Omnium points)
200m tt, full Sprint Rounds, a short Snowball Race, and a Win&Out on Saturday Keirin and Kilo on Sunday
5 races over the Friday and Saturday. 2 Points Race, Snowball Race, Miss&Out, Scratch Race. Simple
B and C Omniums
5 races as well over Friday and Saturday with the first races going off being the B and C qualifiers on Friday night. Top half of each qualifier goes into the B' and C' category for the rest of the 4 races while the bottom half go into the B and C category. The Omniums will be added up by the 4 remaining races.
Again 5 races over the two days. Miss&Out, Tempo Race, Scratch Race, Unknown Distance Lottery Race (I will explain on the line), Points Race. Again just as simple.
New Racers and Fixie Races on the Saturday
For all the above categories Sign on is open at Karelo and will close Friday the 24th at noon.
For all the events below sign up will be done by emailling the organizer (email@example.com)
Open Madison Omnium
3 races over Friday and Saturday. 100lap 4x25, 3km Pursuit (2 teams on the track at once), 100lap 5x20. The fee will be $25 per person and sign up is done through me. Please email me if you want to race this and tell me who your partner is. Gear limits will be in effect and riders are expected to be competent in this event to take part.
B Madison Challenge
Saturday evening a single event for those riders who don't think they are ready to race in the Open Madison. Riders need to have taken at least a Madison clinic. $10 per rider and email me as well to take part.
World's Omnium on Sunday
All the Omniums, but one, will be done by Saturday evening. Only the Sprinters are going through Sunday. Everyone else is invited to take part in the 5 event World's Style Omnium (200m, Scratch race, Pursuit, Points Race, TT). There will be 5 categories with the limit set at 20 riders per category, with the minimum being 6. The categories will be A, B, C, Women, and a 50+.
