I'm struggling to understand this post :p 

 

What shouldn't be possible?

 

Well, if there was no advantage on the altitude, then surely you would also consider those times 'worthy'?

The World Cup format competition is also different. Sprints are done in a single day whereas Omniums are done within 2 hours.

Oh well, ever since they fucked the omnium over I don't care that much anymore anyway. It badly needs to get back at the very least one sprint event, but two would be better.

If altitude had no advantage, sure, they'd be more 'worthy', since 4:05 at sea level is simply better than 4:05 at altitude. Much like Nicholas Paul's sprint qualifying WR is kind of bullshit.

I think you mean getting back timing events because elimination race of Omnium involves sprinting. Van Schip likes it right now.

I like the elimination race, but when the omnium consists of four events, all of which are endurance events...meh. Nothing wrong with having the flying lap and/or kilometer in there.

I strongly agree, and with the tempo race being a short version of the points race you don't get that much versatility
