Qualifying

Hoogland delighted the crowd in Apeldoorn

Home favourite Jeffrey Hoogland topped the table in the Men’s Sprint Qualifying with a time of 9.674. Australia’s Matthew Glaetzer was just 0.003 seconds behind and Sebastien Vigier of France was the third quickest qualifier. Harrie Lavreysen joined his compatriot Hoogland in the group of four who would go straight through to the 1/8 final, with places 5-28 going to the 1/16 ride offs.

1/16 Finals

Full gas in the Men’s Sprint 1/16 Finals

There weren’t many surprising results in the 1/16 finals. Last year’s Bronze medallist Sam Webster from New Zealand failed to progress, but he isn’t been looking on top form all week. Both British riders, Carlin and Owens, cruised through, as did defending champion Denis Dmitriev from Russia.

Individual Pursuit

Qualifying

Oliveira (POR) was on fire in the qualifying

Despite being tipped for the title beforehand, Great Britain’s Charlie Tanfield wasn’t quite at his World Cup winning pace in qualifying. The Team KGF rider clocked 4:14.025 to finish third and go through to the Bronze medal final against Evtushenko of Russia.

Filippo Ganna (ITA) put in a strong ride for second, but nobody was anywhere near as strong as Ivo Oliveira. The Portugese rider set a time of 4:12.365 to make himself the clear favourite for the title.

1 OLIVEIRA Ivo POR 4:12.365 – Qualify for Gold/Silver Final
2 GANNA Filippo ITA 4:13.622 – Qualify for Gold/Silver Final
3 TANFIELD Charlie GBR 4:14.025 – Qualify for Bronze Final

6 THIELE Kersten GER 4:17.281


Women

Omnium

Scratch Race

Wild is clearly on fantastic form this week

The first 20 laps of the Omnium Scratch Race saw very little action, with all the favourites marking each other. With seven laps to go, three riders came down in turn one. Then with six laps to go, there was another incident, in which both Xiaojuan Diao (HKG) and one of the UCI Commissaires were taken down. Both of them were taken to hospital shortly after, as the race was neutralised.

When the race resumed, with 15 laps on the board, it was another rather sedate affair. With two laps to go, Kirsten Wild (NED) accelerated around the outside of the bunch and took up the position at the head, which is where she would stay. Wild took the victory in the first of the four Omnium events.

Tempo Race

Barker’s Tempo Race performance moved her up the Omnium standings

The second event of the omnium was full-gas from the start. The USA’s Jennifer Valente, Kirsten Wild (NED) and Elisa Balsamo from Italy were amongst the riders who bagged early points. The main move of the race saw China’s Xiaofei Wang and Gudrun Stock from Germany move clear at the front and collect several points, but they were brought back. With 5 laps to go, it was Elinor Barker of Great Britain who attacked and she proceeded to stay away for the rest of the race, collecting all the remaining points. In doing so, Barker claimed victory in the Tempo Race, with Stock (GER) second and Wang (CHN) third.

After two of the four events, Wild (NED) leads the competition. Barker from Great Britain sits second and Balsamo of Italy is third for now.

1 BARKER Elinor GBR (7)
