First “Update” being published before Online Registration is even…you know, online.  BikeReg has finally been beaten to a pulp and the event will be live as soon as they can get it loaded.  Dang.

Yes, I have managed to get the flyer fixed (again), and it should have all of the information this time.  Stage 1 Start Times are EARLY, compared to our usual 8:00 starts… 7:00 and so on, hoping we can escape the heat.  HAHAHAHA!!

Good one, eh?  Yes, it will be warm, but yes we will also escape the heat at the Stage 1 Start at least.  It will NOT be chilly at the summit, so we will leave the hot chocolate stuff at home this time.  We **always** bring the stoves and HC, so that is going to be a little strange.

 

As you probably know already, an Omnium event has multiple stages, but scores the results by points rather than cumulative time.  Here is the Points Schedule for the DVRO:

Place                Stage 1 Points     Stage 2 Points

1                            35                                 40

2                            25                                 30

3                            20                                 22

4                            15                                  17

5                            12                                  14

6                            10                                  12

7                              9                                   11

8                               8                                   10

9                               7                                     9

10                             6                                     8

11                              5                                     7

12                              4                                     6

13                              3                                     5

14                              2                                     4

15 or higher          1                                     3

 

As you can see, the Stage 2 points are a little higher than the Stage 1 points.  Tie breaker will be the Stage 2 finishing position, since it is the tougher stage.
