Anybody going to this omnium??? I'm wondering specifically about the Friday night drag races. How are these run? Lots of crashes or is there plenty of room? does this end up truly being an all out sprint or does someone typically grab a wheel then try to jump at the end? How fast do people typically get going? And most importantly if one does these heats are you typically to burnt to have a good race in the following days crit or Sundays RR? Sounds like fun but would like to know more before jumping into this event.

It's a sprint, it's not a catch someone's wheel and then jump them at the end. If you don't have a good sprint, you ain't gonna win, that's for sure. It will not leave you burned out for the rest of the weekend.
