weekly racing Updates
6/23/17 - Our first International Omnium attempt ever at the Northbrook Velodrome went off as a success! ... until the rain came and ruined the final points race for all categories. Oh well. We saw lots of good racing across the board. The Cat 3's and 4's were really well mixed all night with five different winners in six events and were primed for great battles in the final points race. Hopefully everyone had fun and learned a little bit about how the International Omnium is run. Congrats to our first IO winners at the track, Jacob Cramer (Cat 3), Matt Sedwick (Cat 4), Francine Haas (Women's Open), and Tyler George (Cat 1/2).
A special thanks to Bouledogue Tout Noir for hosting this unique night of racing. The team's members are great racers, better people, and staples at the Northbrook Velodrome. For more information about the team check out their webpage here.
