Day 2 

In an exciting second day of racing at the World Cup in Sydney, the women battled it out for honors in the 500m Time Trial and the 3km Individual Pursuit medals. The day went to go the Dutch riders Yvonne Hijgenaar and Marlijn Binnendijk. Both rode exceptionally well, they are showing great form in the run up to the World Championships. Yvonne speaking to WomensCycling after the event said “ I am really please with my performance, I was hoping to go under 35, I know I can do it with a bit more work”. When asked how she felt taking up the mantle of Leontien Zijlaard van Moorsel, she was coy in her response and replied “I’m not there yet

Kerrie Meares, who is gradually getting back for form had a great race, unfortunate to miss out on the medals. Talking to WomensCycling after her race Kerrie was asked about her performance. She said it wasn’t the best performance but I am pleased with how I am going. We are working to a plan so I am happy”.

Elisa Frisoni ITA, talked to WomensCycling through an interpreter, when asked how she felt about today she said “I am happy with tonight, Silver is a good medal at this time in my programme, but winning the overall World Cup is what I was aiming for” When asked about her preparations for the World Championships she said I have some more speed work to do but I think everything is going as expected”. WomensCycling asked Elisa to choose the best track in the world for her, her response was categorically Melbourne it has always been successful for me”.

Using Sydney as a training base Lori-Ann Muenzer spoke after the event, she said I am over the moon with the result. When I finished my race I looked up and thought 5th that’s not bad, the crowds were cheering, I thought it was for the other rider. Then I realised I was actually in first place”. Unfortunately she did not hold this for long but seemed pleased nonetheless.
