May 31/09 18:56 pm - Junior Track Trials at the FCV

Posted by Editor on 05/31/09

The first of two evaluation trials has just concluded at the Forest City Velodrome in London, Ontario. The 138m Velodrome hosted the trials on Saturday (May 30th). This event is one of many trials going on accross the country. The results will help the CCA select a team which will attend the Junior Worlds in Moscow later this summer.

14 athletes from across Ontario competed in individual trials against the clock in three separate events.

In the Sprint category, Allan Leparskas, London came close to his FCV track record of 7.771 seconds, however, he just missed the time standard in a time of 7.811 seconds or 63.60 kph.

Three of Ontario's racers made the time standard for the Mass Start endurance test. This event test is very difficult, because a racer has to go flat out in the first 500m to simulate an attack and gain a gap in an endurance race (Points or Scratch). Then the rider has to carry the speed over the next 1,500m and better the standard set by the Canadian Cycling Association. Krista Ruby, Florence Laplante-Lamarsh and Ryan Aitcheson all were able to exceed their time standards.

Many other riders were very close to the standards: Alex Cataford (Cadet), Trevor Dickenson, Jason King (Cadet), Colin Morwood, John Carden, Stephanie Bester, Emily and Sarah McKenzie-Picot.

There will be a last chance for all riders to better their times on Saturday June 13th at the FCV. The trials will begin with a warm-up session at 1pm with the last chance trials beginning at 2pm.
