Rock Me Omnium

Tour of Galena Omnium: 1st Daphne Karagianis 2nd Dani Arman 3rd Madeleine Pape

Not just a race report but a song + ballad sung to the tune of Wagon Wheel by Old Crow Medicine Show as written by Lucy Batten. Feat. Andrew Nordyke, Chicago’s Cuttin Crew, Madeleine Pape, Dani Arman, Jonathan Heile and TSH Women

Heading out west with my friend Madeleine
I’m thumbing my way into Galena, Illinois
Staring up the road and pray to God I get good tan lines
I made it up the road in about 3 hours
Carrying up a bunch of Enve wheels
And We’re a-hopin’ for a podium, gotta win that race tonight

So rock me Omnium like a wagon wheel
Rock me Omnium any way you feel
Hey Omnium rock me
Rock me Omnium like the wind and the rain
Rock me Omnium like a south bound train
Hey Omnium rock me!

Running up the West Cemetery Road
I was born to be a climber for Tenspeed Hero
My baby rides a Cervelo, I ride a Focus now
These big ol’ climbs keep a-getting me down
Lost my legs half way up but I had to push on
So I opened my suitcase of courage and got me a crown

Oh rock me Omnium like a wagon wheel
Rock me Omnium any way you feel
Hey Omnium rock me
Rock me Omnium like the wind and the rain
Rock me Omnium like a south bound train
Hey Omnium rock me!

Ridin’ that criterium round the old town
I caught the wheel of rider and Chicago Cuttin Crew wouldn’t let go
Me and Pape workin to win this race
But on that last lap I broke away
Turned my watts up and I got my sprint on
I hear Andrew a-shoutin my name and I know that I won

So rock me Omnium like a wagon wheel
Rock me Omnium any way you feel
Hey Omnium rock me
Rock me Omnium like the wind and the rain
Rock me Omnium like a south bound train
Hey, Omnium rock me!
