Who would win this, /n/?
>The Ultimate Cyclist
Competitors race in at least two events from every discipline of cycling for the title of 'Ultimate Cyclist'.
Competitors must complete at least seven events. Points are awarded in the same manner as the Omnium, but the best and worst scores are discarded. If a competitor completes more than seven events, then one of their best scores and one of their worst scores is discarded, in that order, until their amount of scores is reduced to five.
7 Day Stage race (GC, points and KOM are equally valuable in the overall UC classification)
Enduro (Format: downhill stages timed, generous time limits on transition stages)
Cross Country Eliminator (With gate start; lap starts at the top of the loop)
*With new rule: certain features are 'designated penaty features' and if you crash, voluntarily dismount or cause the person behind you to crash then you are placed in a penalty pen for 15 s. Technical descents will be wide enough for passing or have two distinct routes: one is easier but longer and the other is designated for passing. If you obstruct a competitor even without crashing/dismounting you are placed in the penalty pen for 5 s.
>Track and BMX
>During the off-season there is 'Cyclocross Unlimited': a CX race with bike rules equivalent to those of XC racing, to see if CX still has a reason to exist.

Hey, /n/. Not /n/ here.
I ride a cheap hardtail bike that I'm gradually road-izing, and now I just got myself a little bit o' cash.
Is switching from riser to flat bars worth it? How about getting a fixed fork?
What do I do with this money to make my bike mo' efficient? I considered drop bars, but then I'll have to switch out the shifters and the brake levers, and that'd be too expensive. I've already got slick tires, and I flipped my stem.
Pic unrelated. I don't have any pictures of bikes. I'll give you these rodent things instead. Is that okay with you guys?
