Are you an all- arounder? If so sign up for the omnium competition that combines both fitness and skills to crown the King and Queen of the mountain. This is a combination of the Road Race and Mountain Bike Race for an overall prize list. The Omnium is a points-based scoring system derived from finishing placings in each event. The road race finish is the tie breaker if need be.
