    It's the Ohio-Michigan War all over again!  OhMi! This will be a Friendly between the Ann Arbor Velo Club and Maumee Valley Wheelmen cycling clubs (at least) though we are hoping more clubs will be represented.

    Where: 

    -Park at the Hudson Middle/High School, 746 N Maple Grove Ave, Hudson, MI 49247.  Water and bathroom facilities are not guaranteed.

    The Race:

    -The race will be a mass-start event (all racers in all categories start together and race together).

    -There will be a neutral rolling start from the Hudson Middle/High School parking lot to the left turn onto South Rollin Highway (approximately 2.5 miles) at 10:00 a.m.

    -The course will NOT be marked, but there will be course marshals at each corner.  The marshals will only signal to the racers that there is other vehicle traffic to be aware of; they will NOT stop other vehicle traffic.

    -The course will NOT be closed to other vehicle traffic, use caution and common sense while racing and obey traffic laws.

    Particulars:

    -To be considered a "team" there must be at least 4 male and/or female racers but not more than 10.

    -If there are at least 2 full female teams there will be a women's race scored separately from the men's race.
    -Racers on each team must wear matching kit (for identification purposes by other racers and race director).  Wear your team colors with pride!
    -Scoring: Racers will be awarded points according to the number of racers on the start line. First place will get points equal to the number of racers, 2nd place will get 1 less, etc. ALL finishers will score points for their club. No riders will be pulled, so keep racing to the finish no matter what place you are in!
    -If you are not in a represented club you will be grouped with other non-represented riders into "Team Solo" and are encouraged to practice team racing skills with the other members of Team Solo. Can Team Solo beat the organized teams?
    -All proceeds after expenses will be divided up between the REPRESENTED clubs. Team Solo is not considered a club for this purpose.

    Lastly, the USAC requires completion of a paper copy of their Event Release Form.  You may find a partially pre-filled form here.  Please print the form, complete it, and then bring it with you on Sunday.  Completion of this form is required, and I have to keep these forms on file for the year.  If you have questions regarding OhMi!, text, call or e-mail !
