On Saturday the 17th of April the very first omnium of the Racie took place on the Race track in Ede. The sun was shining, the music was playing, birds were singing, coffee was served and everybody was very excited. The first people started to arrive at 9 AM and started to explore the challenging track. The track was extended because of the addition of a parking lot and had a lot of sharp corners. Everybody seemed to really like the different race-components, which were a time trial, point race, reverse time trail and knock out race. The lunch also was very huge success with more then enough food for everybody. The jelly sandwich was enjoyed the most, with great surprise to some of the Racie members.
The head of the races with the men mostly included Wouter, Jetze and Alger. Is was not a surprise to see these men on the podium afterwards, with Wouter first, Jetze second and Alger third. With the women it was a really close race. In the end, Els managed to beat Nadja with only 0.1 points! Vera manage to get third place.
After the award ceremony a lot of people helped cleaning up, moving fences and putting tables back inside, which the Racie was very grateful for!
It is safe to say that this Omnium was a huge success and will surely be repeated in the future!
