2 Days of Buffalo – 2015 Details
Overview
Two days of Buffalo is a two day, 3 stage omnium style event. The stages will be as follows:
 Stage 1 – Saturday August 1st 2015 - McKinley Time Trial
 Stage 2 – Saturday August 1st 2015 – South Park Circuit Race
 Stage 3 – Sunday August 2nd 2015 – Canalside Criterium
Because of the omnium format racers who choose not to participate in the omnium can still participate
in any of the stages and race more than one race if desired. Riders who do so will not be eligible for
omnium placing – only stage placing. Also Racers who are participating in the omnium can race extra
non-omnium races.


Example 1: A racer could participate in only the Cat 4 Circuit Race and nothing else if they chose.
Example 2: A racer participating in the omnium as a Cat 3 can also race the Master’s Circuit Race
– or Master’s Criterium – or both extra races.

Omnium Scoring:
This event will use the “international omnium” method of scoring. The winner of a stage will receive 1
point, 2nd place receives 2 points, 23rd place would receive 23 points etc. The racer, who accumulates
the fewest points from all 3 stages, will be declared the overall omnium winner. Racers must complete
all 3 events in order to be in the running for overall. Any tie in overall points will be split by the riders’
placement in the time trial. The table below gives an example of the points breakdown:
