Elite/Jr Track Nationals: Day 1

The opening day of track nationals saw some new champions crowned and some familiar faces on the podium. Charley Vives qualified fastest in the men's elite individual pursuit and then bested his Quebec team mate David Boily in the final to take gold. Kevin Thorpe did the same to his team mate Jacob Schwingboth both from Cycling BC in the Jr men's individual pursuit. Upgraded cadet Alex Cataford ( Ontario ) put in a solid qualifying and final to take bronze. Lots to hear from in the future with Alex.

The women were sprinting on day one as well with Monique Sullivan capturing gold in the elite over Karine Cote with Amy Biskaborn taking bronze. Krista Rudy won the Jr women's sprint over Flo Laplante-Lamarsh.

There was a bit of an upset in the elite men's team sprint with Canada 2 taking it over Canada 1 in the final. Canada 2 was made up of upgraded junior riders Scott Mulder and Allan Leparskas and National Team veteran Travis Smith. Canada 1 was Laurence Leroux, Stephane Cossette, and Joe Veloce. Alberta took the bronze. In the Jr men's it was BC 1 taking gold with Schwingboth, Curtis Jung, and Boris Martin. Silver went to Quebec and bronze to BC 2.

Racing continues on Friday with men's scratch races, team pursuits for men and women, men's keirin, and women's pursuit.
