June 22-25: Tour of America’s Dairyland Granfinale Weekend
It’s not officially summer in Milwaukee until the bike racing begins! Once again, Lowlands Group will be there to challenge racers competing in our GranFinale Sprint Competition, which takes place June 22-25, the last four days of the Tour of America’s Dairyland.
While watching the races is exciting enough, this annual Omnium Sprint competition that we sponsor acts as a “Race within the Race”, adding another layer of competition to these already-challenging criteriums. Halfway through each of the four final races of the series (Shorewood, Bay View, Downer & Tosa), a sprint lap is announced. The top five finishers of that sprint lap accrue points. At the end of the four days of racing, the points are totalled and the racers with the most points get paid a purse, provided by the Lowlands Group!
This year, we’ll be providing almost $5,000 in prize money for this Sprint Omnium Competition. For full details and Omnium rules, check out the “Lowlands Gran Finale” section of the ToAD site.
Rumor has it, we may have a surprise or two lined up for the winners at the awards ceremony on Sunday the 25th in Tosa!
Watch riders battle for points at the Shorewood Criterium Cycling Classic, Café Centraal Bay View Classic, ISCorp Otto Wenz Downer Classic, and East Tosa Gran Prix races June 22-25. Also, follow The ToAD Granfinale on Facebook for updates.
