The World Champion from Australia, Amy Cure, won an incredibly close points race.  She was part of a small group that got a lap up and she accumulated 34 points, but Canada’s Jasmine Glaesser took the race to the last sprint before eventually settling for the silver medal by just one point.  Great Britain’s Elinor Barker also took a lap and with 27 points secured the bronze medal.

OMNIUM

 

Two riders have dominated day one of the omnium, taking first and second place in the first three events.   GB’s Laura Trott won the bunch sprint in the Scratch by the smallest of margins from Kirsten Wild (Netherlands) and Amalie Dideriksen (Denmark).  She followed this up by winning the Pursuit, again just ahead of Wild again, with Jennifer Valente (USA) taking the third.  However Kirsten Wild managed to reverse the results in the Elimination race, beating Laura Trott into second place while Jolien D'hoore took the third spot.
