It was a day of mixed results and experiences for the
Canadian riders today in Moscow at the Junior Track
World Championships. Kevin Thorpe and Ryan Aitcheson
both contested the 3 km individual pursuit with Kevin
Thorpe coming home with a personal best time of 3:34.2
and Ryan riding a 3:39.
Allan Leparskas and Scott Mulder both raced the keirin
and while both did not advance after the reps both came
away with much new found experinece and Scotty with
some extra bandages from a spectacular, but in the end,
minor crash. Each rider did not advacne after round
one as only one rider went on and then one rider would
advance from each rep. Allan had a good go of it in
the rep and Scotty was in good position until a British
rider came up track taking down all but one rider who
advanced. Scott was up quickly with only
minor track rash.
Flo Lamarsh-Laplante and Krista Rudy teamed up to place
7th in the women's team sprint and Ben Cowburn finished
in the main sprint bunch of the 10km men's scratch race.
Tomorrow the feature event for the Canadian team is
the team pursuit. Stay tuned.
