August 4/19 16:21 pm - Pan Am Games: Madison Silver for Canada

Posted by Editoress on 08/4/19

The Canadian team of Maggie Coles-Lyster and Miriam Brouwer won the silver medal in the women's Madison on Sunday at the Pan Am Games in Lima, Peru.  The United States won gold with 46 points, followed by Canada at 35 and Mexico, also at 35 points. Canada took silver after finishing ahead of Mexico in the final sprint.

Brouwer was in her first Madison race on a full 250 metre track, and the pair of NextGen riders had a strong start, holding the lead after seven of 12 sprints.  However, the U.S. moved into the lead for good after winning the next two sprints, with Mexico pulling two points in front of Canada after the second to last sprint.  Canada finished second in the final double points sprint with Mexico third to move Canada in front of their rivals.

"Our plan going into the race was to stay at the front because it was the safest place," explained Coles-Lyster.  "Thank goodness we had that tactic because most of the crashes happened behind us.  Miriam has a better endurance engine, so she went for the longer stuff and I'm the sprinter.  We set me up and got enough sprints."

"We had never actually raced a Madison together," said Brouwer, "but we jelled really well and were reading each other's minds well, which is what you have to do in a Madison."
