The San Diego Omnium - Inaugural Two-Day Race

UCSD, SDSU and SD Bicycle Club Host Inaugural Two-Day Race

Partnership brings racing back to UCSD’s campus

The First Annual San Diego Omnium is a joint event between the cycling teams of UC San Diego (UCSD), San Diego State University (SDSU), and the San Diego Bicycle Club (SDBC) that will take place February 28 and March 1. The Omnium—a multi-race competition where each event counts towards a rider’s overall placing—as well as the individual races of which it is comprised, are open to cyclists of all ages and levels. The race organizers are expecting participants and spectators from across Southern California.

A compelling goal of this event is to provide more racing opportunities for cyclists in San Diego County and to increase the participation of collegiate and women cyclists. Proceeds from the event will benefit each of the three clubs and are used to support initiatives to increase cycling participation and awareness.

Noncash prizes are being provided by event sponsors Rudy Project, Skratch Labs, San Diego Herbal Medicine, Cafe Virtuoso, and WD-40 BIKE.
