Junior Worlds - Mexico

Canadian results from the first day of track competition.

Cycling B.C. sent the following comments from Canadian Pursuiter Matt Potma:

I rode my pursuit yesterday. I was feeling pretty good at the time; did some fast 1.5k efforts the day before.

The wind was somewhat mild, about 10-15kph, tailwind through the first banking. I went out slow (relatively speaking), pulling about 23s laps at first. A lot of riders were blowing, and I was afraid that would happen to me as well. It all went quite fast, before I knew it, there were only 3 laps left (1km) and I was still comfortable. I opened it up a lot, brought my laps down to 22s, the last being a 21.4. My kilos were 1:13, 1:09, 1:06. Far from ideal, but still rode a short 3:28. The time placed me 10th overall and I had the 2nd fastest final kilo of the day!

Scratch Race is tonight, no qualifying rounds, just straight to the final of 20 riders. I looked over the starting list and the only name I recognized from the top few riders in the pursuit was Travis Meyer.

I'm feeling good, I have a decent top end power and think a good result is quite attainable tonight.
