The final day of competition at the Omnisport arena in Apeldoorn saw five Gold medals awarded – for the Women’s Sprint and Points race and for the Men’s Keirin, Omnium and Madison.

Women’s Sprint

Qualifying 200m Time Trial

Apeldoorn 2016 Day 3
Pauline Grabosch of Germany set the fastest flying 200m time at 11.067

Shanne Brespennincx of the Netherlands was the third rider away and the first to set a competitive time in the Women’s Sprint Qualifying, dispatching the 200m in 11.165 seconds. Three heats later, China’s Lili Lui came within a whisker – recording a time of 11.250 to go second – and then, in the next heat, Pauline Grabosch of Germany jumped to the head of affairs – a tenth of a second faster than the Dutch rider on 11.067.

None of the remaining 16 riders would better Grabosch’s time and it wasn’t until the final heat that anyone really came close, Wai Sze Lee of Hong Kong going second on 11.119 to become the fourth of the riders given a bye into the 1/8 Finals.

Men’s Keirin

1st round

Apeldoorn 2016 Day 3
Andrii Vynokurov of Ukraine claimed the first berth in the Keirin Second Round

Ukraine’s Andrii Vyokurov’s fine run of form continued as he booked a place in the Second Round of the Keirin alongside Jeffrey Hoogland of the Netherlands. European Champion and Glasgow winner Thomas Babek, too, looks majestic in the Keirin at the moment – the Czech taking the win in the second heat, ahead of the very promising Shah Sahrom of Malaysia.

Great Britain’s Joe Truman and Tobias Wachter of Germany took the two spots from the penultimate heat with Quentin Lafargue of France and Juan Peralta of Spain claiming the last two spots.

Women’s Sprint

1/8 Finals

Apeldoorn 2016 Day 3
Mandy Marquadt of the USA got a bye to the 1/8 Finals but progressed to the Quarter Finals on merit

The two fastest qualifiers – Grabosch and Lee – re-joined the competition at the 1/8 Final stage and went straight through to the Quarters. Not so Braspennincx – who lost out to Marquadt – or Liu, who fell to Starikova.

Heat 5 went to form, with Calvo disposing of team mate Casas – but in Heat 6, Courtney Field of Australia eliminated Migle Marozaite who had outqualified her by 8 places and two tenths of a second.

Heats 7 and 8 went the way of qualifying with Rachel James of Great Britain and Lauren van Reissen of the Netherlands progressing.

Repechages

Apeldoorn 2016 Day 3
Vasilijus Lendel of Lithuania made it in to the Second Round of the Keirin via the Repechages

Just one rider progressed from each Keirin Repechage heat but most of the pre-race favourites through already, this was a real chance for someone to progress. Vasilijus Lendel of Lithuania took the first and the first over the line in the second was New Zealand’s Simon van Velthooven. The Kiwi was relegated, though and Tomoyuki Kawabata progressed in his place – with Francesco Ceci of Italy taking the final place in the Second Round.

Men’s Omnium – II Tempo Race

Apeldoorn 2016 Day 3
Szymon Sajnok of Poland did his best to make the Tempo race interesting

The Tempo race was one of the more exciting we’ve seen – at least early on – with Poland’s Szymon Sajnok taking the first four points – missing out on the fifth to Leung of Hong Kong and then taking the next two. Chris Latham of Great Britain took sprint 8 before Albert Torres repeated his trick from the European Championships and broke away to take station at the back.

He was joined, initially, by Roy Eefting of the Netherlands and between them they took the points on the next nine laps – 6-3 in Torres’ favour – before they were joined at the back by Italy’s Simone Consonni – who took one sprint – and Ivo Oliveira of Portugal, who took two.

Eefting them took another three as the riders debated when to join the back of the bunch and, in hindsight, they should probably have waited a little longer. As soon as they joined on to the back, Sajnok was off the front with Maximilan Beyer of Germany and took four sprints to Beyer’s three as they headed round to take the lap.

By the time Benjamin Thomas took the penultimate and final points the race was all over – Sajnok taking the win on 14 points – four ahead of Torres and Eefting.

Men’s Omnium – III Elimination

Apeldoorn 2016 Day 3
Szymon Sajnok of Poland stays safe in the centre of the bunch in the early stages of the Elimination race

Sajnok continued to build himself a buffer ahead of the Points Race finale – outsprinting Consonni to win the Elimination race after Latham had conceded at the penultimate elimination.

That left the Pole 14 points clear of Torres going in to the Points Race, with Consonni third a further eight points back.

Women’s Points race

Apeldoorn 2016 Day 3
Great Britain’s Elinor Barker en route to Points Race Gold

Elinor Barker of Great Britain scored in 6 of the 8 sprints – although she won only one – and took a lap en route to victory in the Points Race. Going in to the final sprint on 35 points she was still well within double points reach of Minami Uwano of Japan and Jarmila Machacova of the Czech Republic who were two and seven points behind respectively.

Laurie Berthon of France won the final sprint – jumping six places to 8th – from Rachele Barbieri of Italy and Barker – with her two closest rivals failing to score.

Men’s Omnium – IV Points race

Apeldoorn 2016 Day 3
Sxymon Sajnok of Poland celebrates his Omnium victory

With his 14 point cushion, Sajnok really didn’t need to do anything other than keep an eye on Torres – and half an eye on Consonni and Thomas. In the opening laps of the race he was glued to Torres’ rear wheel but the points mostly going to riders further down the field and the bunch policing any attempt to gain a lap, he was actually able to rack up a couple of second places and a win in the intermediate sprints to consolidate his position.

In a last ditch attempt to take the overall, Torres broke away with 12 laps to go. He took the penultimate sprint to move him within 13 points and, at one point, could see the back of the bunch ahead of him. But Sajnok was by now on the front of the bunch driving it on relentlessly and the gap began to open again.

Torres took the final sprint but it wasn’t enough – leaving him three point adrift – but Thomas’ second point was enough to keep him ahead of Consonni – who was fourth across the line – to snatch second.

Men’s Madison

Apeldoorn 2016 Day 3
Kenny De Ketele throws fellow Belgian Robbe Ghys into the action in the closing stages of the Madison 

A late charge from Belgium saw them take what was, in the end, a comfortable win in the Men’s Madison. At the half way stage, Kenny De Ketele and Robbe Ghys trailed Italy, early leaders Poland, Great Britain and Switzerland but they had a plan. A simple plan. They won every one of the remaining sprints – adding 35 points to the 5 they’d scored in the first half of the race.

Frencesco Lamon and Simone Consonnit had won three sprints in the first half and finished in the points behind Belgium in four of the last six points to ensure Italy would take home the Silver – and second place in the final sprint was enough to lift Oliver Wood and Mark Stewart above Switzerland.
