Not a stage race unfortunately. Along with 99% of the multi stage events in the SouthEast. Not sure what everyone's obsession with omnium's is here. Higher participation probably. But still sucks.

BTW Murrieta is not a stage race. Its an Omnium which is fine with me and I'm planning on doing all three events. Personally I would prefer if this was a stage race as many "fresh horses" will show up just for the Circuit Race. Thanks for putting up the race!

I am new at this stage race stuff. Being an Omnium would imply the overall is points based and not time? It also would explain why you can sign up for a single event individually?

Stage races can be based on points too - the difference is that you have to complete each stage of an SR.

+1. The Tour de France used to be scored on points, Back In The Day. Excluding stage races for being scored on points seems silly. Excluding them for being true omniums (no requirement to finish each stage) is fair enough.

I'm just including races that are stage races. They can be points or time, as long as they are true usac stage races, and it is required for each rider to finish each stage.

edit: Just doing this to separate out the real/true stage races. There are a lot of points and a different experience when doing a stage race vs. an omnium, or a weekend series of racing. I know to a lot of people that is desirable!

I'll be there. Looking forward to a great race. It's definitely not a stage race though!

Bump, I know there are more stage races. Especially in the SE. Hopefully.

I'm wondering, how do stage races work regarding upgrading from 5 to 4. I know I need to finish 10 mass start races. So in a stage race that consists of a RR, TT, and crit, would the RR and crit both count as a race, or is the whole thing just counted as 1 race?

You would get 2 starts. RR and Crit. TT would not count and Stage Race as a whole would not count.
