Plans are underway now for the 2014 Nebraska Omnium Weekend, #3 of the Midwest Flyover Series. We will have much the same format as last year (without the torrential rains though). But we will have a change in the time trial, which will be on a new course near Ashland, and utilizing 'road rules' with no aero equipment. That will make it easier for out of state racers to car pool without dragging along extra bikes. (The Nebraska State TT Championship will be held at a different date and will allow full aero equipment)
Details are being worked out but here is the general format.
The weekend is presented by:
Sid Dillon Chevrolet Fremont & Blair and
Dillon Brothers Harley Davidson & MotorSports
Saturday morning: June 7th Sid Dillon Chevrolet/Dillon Brothers Harley Davidson & MotorSports Time Trial. Rolling Nebraska countryside near Ashland, Nebraska midway between Omaha and Lincoln). We have not selected the exact course but possibilities are one loop of the road race, or going west from Ashland, or out and back on Church Road near Ashland. Any of these provide an interesting course with lots of rolling hills. The distance will be between 12 and 16 miles. Check back later for more details.
Saturday Afternoon: June 7th: Ashland Criterium, Ashland, Nebraska. Located between Omaha and Lincoln, the first edition of this race last year was exciting despite heavy rainstorms, with bikers racing through city streets near the swimming pool. The course was well received; it provides a good mix of fast corners, rolling hills, and an uphill finish.
Sunday Afternoon June 8th: Sid Dillon Chevrolet/Dillon Brothers Harley Davidson & MotorSports State Championship Road Race. This is one of the best road courses in the Flyover series. Plenty of hills, smooth roads and an uphill finish.
Omnium points are awarded in each event, with points awarded for 1st, 2nd, etc. in each category. Additional prize list of $1130 for the omnium. There will also be a random drawing for a set of Williams System 30 wheels. All racers are eligible; you must be present to win. The drawing will occur at the start of the Road Race.
This is stage 3 of the Flyover: Midwest Omnium Race Series, with a total series payout of $20,000!!. Go to www.midwestflyover.com for info on the race series.
