The Tour of Newport News is back for its second year and its bigger and better than ever. This 3 day, 4 event Omnium offers some of the best racing in the Mid-Atlantic. The Tour of Newport News runs from Friday, April 12th to Sunday, April 14th, 2024 and features Street Sprints on 23rd St on Friday night, the Crawford Road Time Trial on Saturday morning, the Newport News Twilight Criterium on Saturday Afternoon/Evening, and the Fort Eustis Circuit Race on Sunday. If you cannot stay for the whole weekend of racing you can still sign up for individual events on the registration page. We are happy to announce that Frankie Andreu is returning as the announcer for the Tour of Newport News and with over $14k in cash and prizes on offer for the weekend, and winners jerseys for the overall omnium champions, we promise it’s worth the trip. New for 2024 is a best young rider omnium competition for the following categories: Women’s Cat 4/5, Women’s Pro/1/2/3, Men’s Cat 4/5, Men’s Cat ¾, Men’s Cat 2/3, and Men’s Pro/1/2.

An elimination style, standing start sprint on a straight, slightly uphill 200 meter course. Between 4-6 riders will line up at a time, clipped in and being held upright at the start by volunteers and race head-to-head in a drag race. Heats will be separated by category depending on how many riders register. Expect to complete between 2-4 sprints depending on if you make it to the finals. Points will be awarded to the top 10 finishers in each category and count towards the omnium. Expect a party atmosphere with Frank Andreau announcing and drink specials from Coastal Fermentory. For 2024 we will run 2-3 categories at a time completely through their 1st round. These same categories will then complete their 2nd round before then completing the final round.
