The Encino Velodrome in Los Angeles, California, has announced the 2006 Bob Hansing Memorial Cup Track Race Series. Four award types (best overall, best sprinter, best endurance racer and most aggressive) will be given on the basis of points acquired during Bob Hansing Memorial Cup Series designated Omniums at the Encino Velodrome in each of five competitive categories: 1/2/3, Masters 40+, Women, 4/5, and Juniors.
The race series will begin in March and finish in September. Racers can compete in as few or as many of the Bob Hansing Memorial Cup Series Omniums as they wish. Points accumulate throughout the year and will be tabulated on an ongoing basis. All points will count towards a racer's overall series results.
Starting with the second event in the series, the leaders in each award competition will wear a specially coloured number, similar to the leaders' jerseys in the Tour de France: yellow for the overall leader, green for the sprint leader, red for the endurance leader and purple for the leader in the most aggressive competition. At the end of the series, trophies will be awarded to the four award winners (best overall, best sprinter, best endurance racer and most aggressive) in each of the five categories (1/2/3, Masters 40+, Women, 4/5, and Juniors) - 20 awards in all.
