The men's team sprint was an interesting one with teams getting relegated in each round for not changing correctly, but thankfully not us. Dave Heald, Rowan Elliott and Ben Elliott recorded 49.822 in qualifiers to place 8th and get the joy of riding against the fastest team in the semis. They improved slightly in the semis for 49.550 which secured them 7th overall in the end.

Rowan Elliott had the men's sprint. The fastest qualifier Callum Skinner did a 10.193 which highlights the quality of the field. Rowan went 4 tenths quicker than last year with a 11.556 and was only 1 tenth off his pb. This made him 27th so unfortunately he did not progress to the rounds.The points qualifiers for the men had Jack Green and Andy Stuart for VC. Andy rode well but just missed out on a place for the final.

Jack did very well gaining a lap with another rider and picking up 6 points along the way. 26 pts gave him 6th in his heat and a ride in the final. He rode strongly in the 30k final to finish 14th with nearly half the field finding it too tough and giving in!

The women had team sprint and scratch race today. Madeline Moore and Laura Clode rode a fantastic 37.272 in qualifiers, placing 5th behind 4 very strong squad teams and beating some strong teams also. They cemented their 5th place in the ride offs, backing their ride up very well with a 37.386. The fastest women's team sprint duo VC has had for a good few years.

Jessica Hill had a solid ride in her first national scratch race, placing 20th with the top 8 taking laps and all being world, paralympic or olympic champions, so quite a good field!

 

Thank you Rusine Heald for another exciting report!
