Scratch - Australia Belinda Goss won the first round

Race Writeup

The first World Cup track event of the 2009/2010 season got underway in Manchester this weekend.

The first gold for the women went to Belinda Goss in the Scratch race.

Tasmanian Belinda Goss proved too strong in the final sprint to claim victory in the scratch race ahead of Russian Evgeniya Romanyuta and American Shelly Olds (Proman Racing). Sydney's Skye Lee Armstrong (Rodin) finished fourth.

Scratch racing is always tough and positioning is key in the final stages. A break created by the powerful Dutchn rider, Vera Koedooder with only 28 laps remaining was decisive. A lead group of 5 formed and it was then just a matter of who coulod sprint the fastest going into the final 100m. 

In the Qualifying heats, the top 12 riders had to qualify for the final, the racing was tough and a crash in the first heat meant that a number of riders had to re-mount to secure they could make the final. Goss was one of these.

Post Race Comments

Belinda Goss ("AUS) managed to get into the winning break. "I'm really stoked," said Goss who was the bronze medallist in the event at the 2009 World Championships. "I've managed a few podiums on the track but it's really exciting to win one."

Goss and five other riders broke clear with 28 laps remaining and lapped the field setting themselves up to contest the medals."The group worked really well but I wasn't quite sure at the end whether I had won," said Goss. "It was an anxious wait."
