He would also earn 3rd place Omnium points towards the Category P/1/2/3 Omnium. If the 5th placed racer was also a Category 3, he would earn 2nd place points in the Category 3 Omnium, and 5th place points in the Category P/1/2/3 Omnium. Leaders of multiple fields (i.e., if the winner of the Category P/1/2/3 race was a Category 3) will only receive one leader’s Jersey.
