Los Angeles UCI World Cup
Results - Day 1
The third round of the 2005-06 UCI Track World Cup kicked off in suburban Los Angeles Friday as Becky Quinn (Quakertown, Pa.) captured a silver medal in the women's 20km points race. Quinn was second to the Team FRW professional, Italian, Giorgia Bronzini.Riding for Team Spike, one of two American-based professional teams entered in the event, Quinn scored eight points in the evening's final two sprints to raise her total tally to 12 - second only to eventual winner, Italy's Giorgia Bronzini's 14.
Quinn's silver marked the first and only medal for American athletes who are dispersed amongst three squads this weekend - Team Spike, TIAA-CREF and the U.S. National Team."I actually thought the race was going to be won in a breakaway so I initially planned to play it conservative and be in the break," explained Quinn. "But about halfway through it didn't pan out that way. I had to take the last two point sprints to make sure I had a medal."
Quinn was one of three Americans who advanced to the final along with Tina Pic (Dahlonega, Ga.) and Lauren Franges (Ashville, N.C.) of the U.S. National Team. The presence of Quinn's countrywomen factored into her success. "Lauren really helped me in the end," said Quinn. "She kept a nice and steady pace so I could stay aware and there wouldn't be and surprises." Pic scored three points to place 11th overall while Franges placed 19th.
Jennie Reed (Team Spike/Kirkland, Wash.) placed 11th in the women's sprint. After qualifying 13th with a flying 200m time of 11.852 seconds, Reed was matched against and ousted by eventual bronze medalist Willy Kanis of the Netherlands.
Natalia Tsylinskaya (BLR) and Clara Sanchez (FRA) captured gold and silver respectively in the women's sprint.
