August 19/11 22:58 pm - Junior Track World Championships: Day 2 report

Posted by Editoress on 08/19/11

The sprinters took centre stage today at the 2011 Junior World Cycling Championships.  Early in the day a German rider broke the world record in sprint qualifying and set the new mark at 9.887 seconds over the 200m…. he was so smooth that he looked slow…. The world record confirmed, what a show.

Canada’s had Joakim Albert entered in the tournament however his day ended early with a very respectable time of 10.6 seconds, however it was only good for 34th in qualifying.  26 riders were grouped together between 10.55 – 10.70…. a very competitive field of Juniors.

The Canadian team is still suffering through intestinal ailments and not being able to keep any food down, the latest victim’s were the 2 women who had to tough it out through trying circumstances and had great performances.  Audrey Labrie rode a very skilful race in the 10k women’s scratch race and sprinted for 8th position overall, nice work by the 1st year junior.

In the women’s Omnium, Allison Beveridge had to battle through stomach problems between races and is still in contention for a medal after 3 of 6 events.  The medics have been busy with all the teams staying in the hotel, the entire team from Denmark is bed ridden.

We are hoping the health of the athletes improves in the next 15 hours so that our kids can race at their highest potential.

Rob Good, Team Canada
