Lucid Racing // Team Sponsorship

Processed with VSCOcam with c2 presetProcessed with VSCOcam with c2 presetLucid Brewing has been pretty good to us, and when EJ from Lucid approached us with a plan to sponsor their own Brewery CX Team, we jumped at the chance. It just makes sense. So we got together with Stellar Bags and the Minneapolis Musette and did what we could to get these guys outfitted proper. We think the end result looks pretty good.

Watch for these guys alongside our Omnium Racing crew to be killing it this weekend at both races. And be sure to pick up a sixer of Lucid next time you’re in your local establishment, it’s quite tasty.


SONDERKROSSEN V.2 // SEPT. 13TH

om_sc_track1It’s happening again and we’re powerless against it. The seasons change and with this change comes a farewell to our beloved wooden bowl up in Blaine. But do not despair, local racers, for another distraction is upon you. Something which will absorb your newly freed weekends and evenings with an astonishing speed – the Season of Cyclocross is upon us.

So we celebrate our 2013 Track Season and we ring in our 2013/14 Cross Season with the traditional rights of SONDERKROSSEN. There will be food. There will be drink. There will be merriment.

Also maybe some really sweet announcements and product deals.

See you there.

The Stay Classy Classic // Congrats!

IMG_0469This past weekend, Omnium Racing participated in the first annual Stay Classy Classic! The team of five completed the 100 mile course in 7 hours, 39 minutes and 38 seconds, despite high temps and some of the larger climbs southeast Minnesota has to offer.

We’re super proud to sponsor these guys. They’re kind of the best.

Stay Classy, Omnium Racing.

 


Golden Saddle Cyclery Grand Prix // Video

This right here is some good stuff.

Reminds me of a certain weeknight up in Blaine.

Only four left. Can you believe it? Almost like Summer is slipping through our hands.

But we ain’t done yet.

See you Thursday, Speed Racers.


The Almanzo 100

om_almanzo_1Well, that was a heck of a ride.

Pleased to say the weather held off, and with the rains earlier in the day, the course was just about perfect. The Almanzo 100, for those of you not ‘in the know’, is a 100 mile Gravel event that takes place in Spring Valley, MN every year. We were proud to sponsor the Almanzo, and even more stoked to ride the route.

Many thanks and high fives for the customers and friends who rode with us.

If you’re looking for a more complete report you can find one up on the Minneapolis Musette here : Spring Valley, MN

See all ya’ll next year!

Enjoy!


Tracknights: Photos September 14th

Another amazing season of the Velodrome is behind us now. One last September evening to enjoy the thundering boards, the infield, the not stopping. So good. It was my first season and I can guarantee next year I’ll be back with even more piss and vinegar.

All of the photos from this season can be found on our Facebook page! http://www.facebook.com/OmniumBikeShop Stop on by and check yourself or your friends out.

We’ll miss you, giant wooden bowl. But after last nights CX Kick-Off I’m ready for some dirt!

See you next year, Racers!
