Based on previous performance, skaters are seeded into 3- to 5-person heats, to be determined at the time of registration. Heats will be run with the winners advancing to Quarter, Semi, and Final sprint rounds. Non-qualifiers will compete in a consolation sprint final. Typical distances are 1000m to 2km.
Event in which all competitors in a category start at once. The race is a fixed distance to be determined based off a standard time. Field limit is 20 skaters, and categories exceeding this limit will have a qualifying race. Typical distances are 3km to 10km.
All skaters in a category start together for a fixed distance. On predetermined laps, the first competitor across the finish line will receive points. Points may remain the same or increase during the course of the race. Placement is based on the total points earned. Typical distances are 10 to 30 laps.
Miss and Out
In this mass-start event, the last skater across the finish line each lap is eliminated. When 5 competitors remain, they will receive a free lap to recover. After the free lap, the skaters will receive the bell indicating one final lap to go. They will then sprint to final placing.
Win and Out
In this mass-start event, all skaters begin by skating a fixed distance. On the next lap, the first skater across the finish line places first and is removed from the race. The remaining competitors continue with the first skater across the line each lap receiving placement and removed until all have finished.
When this mass-start race begins, skaters do not know length of the event. They continue to skate until the officials ring the bell. From that point, competitors have one remaining lap to go in which they sprint to the finish.
Individual awards will be based on the total points earned from an Omnium.
The Omnium will consist of 3 events TBA.
Points in each Omnium event will be given to the top 4 finishers 7-5-3-1 for
1st through 4th place, respectively. Awards will be given to the top 3
individuals in each category based on total Omnium points.
