There is a certain respect that omnium riders garner from the cycling fraternity, simply because they race an event that many of their counterparts do not want to go near.
That makes Hong Kong-born Australian, Michael Freiberg a “He-Man” in the sport after he captured the World Title in 2011 over a gruelling two days and six different disciplines.
Freiberg’s international track success started 12 months earlier when he seized his opportunity of a Commonwealth Games call up and won Gold in the Team Pursuit and Silver in the Scratch Race.
Michael has transitioned to the road events, basing himself in Europe with the Australian Institute of Sport.
