Race Day Details

Please check the schedule for race day schedules, maps, directions and more.

Team Competition

After the battles of the day are ended, the top 10 warriors across all categories, from each OBRA Sanctioned team (teams that have paid 2013 annual dues to OBRA, listed here) will be tallied and assigned points.

The team with the lowest points for the series will be declared the victor

Teams with fewer than 10 warriors fielded in the battles of the day will be awarded 100 points per absentee warrior up to the total of 10 warriors. Warriors who place 100 or above in any category will be awarded 100 points.

For example, if your team's top placings are: 5 (cat M A's), 8 (cat Elite W), 34 (cat B), 42 (cat B), 22 (Clydesdales), 15 (cat MM50+), 85 (cat SS), and 102 (cat Beg) and you did not field a ninth or tenth warrior in any category, your team would be awarded 511 points.

The victorious team will be awarded the Cross Crusade Team Trophy and will be granted the exclusive fiefdom of a Porta-Potty for the 2014 season (a priceless value and honor).

General Information

The best seven out of nine placings in the series will count in the final tally (drop the races with the fewest points). Riders must race in at least 3 races for the overall series. Series prizes will be awarded at the series end party

Points

Points are awarded 18 deep in each race. Points schedule is – 26,20,16,15,14,13,12,11,10,9,8,7,6,5,4,3,2,1. Reminder: only 7 races count.

Ties

Ties will be broken by OBRA's standard omnium tie-breaking rules (OBRA Rules).

In case of a tie on total points, the tie will be broken in favor of the rider who has:

  1. The most first place finishes or, if still tied, the most second place finishes, etc., or if still tied;
  2. The highest placing in the last race, or the race nearest the last race of the omnium in which at least one of the tied riders placed.

Equipment

Most bikes are legal – Mountain bikes, 'cross, cruisers, unicycles, etc. But take heed: courses will favor those on 'cross bikes – so choose your weapon wisely! Please no fixed gears or bikes with bullhorns or bar ends.
