August 14/01 4:03 am - Summer Games Men's Criterium

Posted by Editor on 08/14/01

Quebec made it two-for-two with a win in the men's criterium by Martin Gilbert. Gilbert took the 22 lap men's race ahead of Marc Bomhof (Alberta) and Buck Miller (Ontario). The men's race was a crash-filled affair, with both Gilbert and Miller getting caught behind one in the final 5 laps.

Bomhof took the penultimate points sprint, for a slim 1 point lead, but Gilbert was confident: "our coach let me know that after the crash I was 1 point behind the leader. I took my (free) lap and got back in and told my team mates. They all knew what to do because we race together alot. They kept a good high rhythm to keep everyone together and then I went at 200 metres."

Gilbert's second in the final double points sprint was enough to move him 3 points in front of Bomhof, while Miller's final sprint win vaulted him over Pierre-Olivier Boily to third. Neither Bomhof nor Miller were as aware of the points situation as Gilbert:

Miller: "I figured I was in the top-5 but I wasn't exactly sure where I was. It was too sketchy out there for a while, with some of the inexperienced riders, so I backed off a bit. But this is one of my best results ever."

Bomhof: "I didn't realize how close it as. I had an idea that I was up there, but I didn't know for sure. I think one of the things that helped me was that I'm used to the (restricted) junior gears, unlike some of the older guys."
