Women's Madison added for 2018
We are delighted to announce the addition of a 2 event women’s Madison race to this year’s programme. On Sunday at Herne Hill, there will be a 200m TT and ploegkoers as part of a short Madison omnium for the women’s pairs. This will be separate to the two-day omnium and riders must enter in advance (entry £8) online. Riders do not have to do the omnium if they only wish to do the Madison.
We see this as a great development from previous years where we have had a simple Madison scratch. We believe this is a step to an eventual two-day Madison to match the men’s competition.
We can also announce changes to the two-day omnium programme with the addition of a tempo race on the Sunday in place of the individual pursuit. This means there will be one timed event and two bunch races each day. A full race schedule can be found on the website
