Stage Information

The High Desert Omnium consists of a Time Trial, a Criterium and a Road Race. Each event will award points of 16-13-10-8-6-5-4-3-2-1 for first through tenth places. Overall Omnium placings will be calculated based on total points awarded. You do not have to race every event to contest for the overall Omnium.
