Scratch Qualifying- World Cup leader makes final

Race Writeup

Heat 1

Korean, Min Hye Lee attacked with 25 laps to go and by lap 15 she had caught the bunch. 

World Cup leader, Tasmanian Belinda Goss worked hard on the front to secure her place in the final. Goss nearly missed out when she got boxed in with 2 to go. She had to move to the outside and managed to cross the line in 5th place. 

In the positioning for the line, a number of riders tried to keep their position in the bunch. The powerful Dutch rider, Ellen van Dijk used her power to get herself out of trouble. Whilst Elke Gebhardt (GER) had to sprint to line to secure her place, as did Rochelle Gilmore (RDN). In the bunch sprint, Xiao Juan Diao (HKG) won ahead of Laura McCaughey (SAL) and Marta Tagliaferro (ITA).

Heat 2

Belgian, Jessie Daams, repeated the move of the first heat. Daams attacked with 20 laps of the 30 lap race to go. She was quickly joined by Iryna Shpylova (UKR) and the pair managed to lap the bunch with 6 laps to go. this caused a reaction in the bunch. Giorgia Bronzini (ITA) and Russian Evgeniya Romanyuta, moved to the front to pick up the pace. Jessie McClean (VBR) took over the pace with 4 to go. 

At the bell the pace was high and everyone was trying to position for the sprint. With only 10 places remaining after the bunch had been lapped, it was a fight for the line. Korean Eunmi won the bunch sprint ahead of Romanyuta and Andrea Wolfer (GER).

Post Race Comments

Giorgia Bronzini (ITA) is one of the many road riders that combine road and track racing. 2009 has been a long season and Bronzini was asked how she has coped with the transition from Europe. It has been difficult, I had a few days to take a break and then, I started with my preparations for the world cup in Manchester and here in Melbourne. It has been very tough, said Bronzini. I will keep training now through to Worlds and then I will take a short break before the road season starts fully, she added.

Belinda Goss (AUS) secured her place in the final. She was very happy with her current form. It has been a busy start to the season, with Manchester , then a training camp in Perth and down her to Melbourne. I am very happy to have made it through to the final,

Ashlee Ankudinoff (AUS) was very happy to have scraped her way into the final by finishing in n12th place."I am pleased I managed it. Last year I just missed out in 13th place in the heat and I wanted to make the final this year. I have set my expectations higher this year so we will see if I can pull it off," said Ankudinoff.

Joanne Kiesanowski (NZL) was please to get through to the final, "It was a strange last few laps. Everyone was trying to position for the sprint, which made it tough. I am happy to get through though," said Kiesanowski.
