First Report from Victoria

When I arrived yesterday, it appeared that the trip might be in vain - 3 days of rain, with an uncertain forecast for race day. However, today dawned bright and sunny, absolutely perfect for track racing. So far today we have had the Flying 200 metre time trial (qualifier for the Match Sprint). Five riders went under 11 seconds, with American Marty Nothstein posting the fastest time of 10.788 seconds. Although the conditions seemed perfect - cool, little wind - no one came close to Curt Harnett‚s track record of 10.542 . This can probably be attributed to lack of practice time (with the rain), and rider fatigue after coming directly from Cali, Colombia. There is also a rumour that some of the bikes were delayed in getting to Victoria.

Three of four Canadian riders made it through qualifier (top 18 men, top 12 women). In the men, Doug Baron was 15th, and goes up against 4th place Grzegorz Krejner of Poland. Both Canadian women qualified well - Tanya Dubnicoff 3rd and Lori Ann Muenzer 5th.
