RESULTS PHOTOS - Over 800 riders competed in this two day, three stage omnium event in central Michigan this past weekend. Details are still sketchy as to what transpired out on the roads, but if the results are any indication, there ARE stories to be told. In the final day's 120 mile point to point road race for the Pro 1/2 (touted as the longest point to point race east of the Mississippi), no less than 50 riders did not finish, and a similar number were disqualified for unknown reasons. Top riders such as Chris Uberti and Paul Martin were DQ'd. The cash payout for the final road race was 25 deep, with a cool $900 going to the winner. Additional prizes were given for KOM and a sprint competition. Find out more in these excellent videos below!
Michigan's Morning Sun gives full disclosure on the disqualifications which were based on the center line rule. With pretty sizable payouts going 25 deep, and everybody past 2nd being disqualified, what happened to all that prize money?
