The La Crosse Ominium
The Midwest's Premier Spring Cycling Classic
The La Crosse Omnium calls upon a diverse "three-event" mastery of bike racing skills. Enter one event, two, or all three as points scored in each event accumulate toward the Omnium Championship.
Hill Time Trial | Details/DirectionsStage one kicks off Friday night with an uphill Time Trial that conquers La Crosse's famous Grandad Bluff and climbs 686 feet in 2.37 miles.
Criterium | Details/DirectionsStage two racing action picks up Saturday morning on a fast and flat Criterium course in front of overflow race fans caught up in a festival of food, drink and live rock and roll music (band performs live from 10am to 2pm in Riverside Park) on the downtown streets of La Crosse.
Road Race | Details/DirectionsStage three concludes on Sunday morning a few short miles across the river in Minnesota. Our road race course tests a riders ability to compete at an intense level on a 13.69-mile loop that features 978 feet of elevation change per lap, heart stopping climbs, take your breath away descents and quad burning rollers.
