 Event Description
Bicycle, Blues and BBQ Festival July 12, 13 & 14, 2013 Clear Lake, IA $15,000 cash prizes & primes Over $3,500 in merchandise prizes Pre-Registration is required of Omnium and ITT. Please join us Friday night in City Park for Blues performer’s Mooseknuckle Brothers and Sena Ehrhardt Band. The first band starts at 5:30 p.m. All pre-registered riders (ages 21 and over) will receive two complimentary beer tickets to the Budweiser & Goose Island hospitality tent Friday night. The Bicycle, Blues and BBQ Festival is thrilled to be an omnium format and a part of the Midwest Flyover. The goal of the omnium is to determine and reward the best all around racers in each of their respective categories. Racers must compete in all three events to be eligible for the omnium. Omnium results are based on points, not time. The BBBQ Race Weekend is also race #4 of the Midwest Flyover Omnium Race Series (www.midwestflyover.com/). Only standard road bikes will be allowed for those competing in the Omnium. Nearly 100% of the racers travel over 90 miles to compete. We wanted to minimize the amount of extra equipment needed to race during this weekend and to maximize the number of teammates who could travel together. The racing action kicks off on Saturday, July 13th with the time trial in the morning followed by a fast-paced and technical criterium, a favorite for racers and spectators alike. The criterium will crown the Iowa State Criterium Champion in each respective event. Racing continues on Sunday, July 14th, with the road race. Starting from Tourist Park in Clear Lake, road races of 85- and 47-miles are on tap, taking in the greater North Iowa countryside.

 Course Description
ITT: 7 mile course - out and back. Criterium: .77 miles course with technical turns. Road Race: 45/83 mile course with rolling hills and a 1/2 closed road sprint to the finish.
