Omnium - Day 1 - Leire Olaberria Dorronsoro lead after three events.

Race Writeup

The Omnium event included six events to match Olympic programme. Increased from five to add the Elimination, it much more of an endurance competition in the build up to London 2012.

Flying 200-The first event was the flying 200m. The Polish rider Malgorzata Wojtyra set the fastest time ahead of the Belarussian Tatsiana Sharakova and Spain's Leire Olaberria Dorronsoro. 

Points - In the points race, the pace was on right from the start. The 2010 world champion Tara Whitten (CAN) started the attacks after the first three laps. She was quickly chased by Evgeniya Romanyuta (RUS) and the rest of the bunch. 

At the first sprint, Vilija Sereikaite (LTU) attacked early to secure maximum points. Immediately Tatsiana Sharakova (BLR) attacked and stretched out the field. 

It looked like Sharakova would secure maximum points at the sprint but Romanyuta worked hard to close the gap on the back straight. Elena Tchalyka (AZE) managed to get on her wheel and the pair secured first and second in the sprint.

Despite a number of attacks, no one rider managed to get away until the bunch slowed after the fifth sprint. This allowed Jamila Machacova (CZE) who had won the sprint, to get away on her own. With 35 to go, Machacova lapped the field. Four other riders had set out in pursuit of Machacova, Pascale Schnider (SUI), Tchalyka (AZE), Elke Gebhardt (GER) and Machacova (CZE), they also managed to lap the rest of the field. 

Marianne Vos (NED) tried to get away on her own once the race came back together, but she was closely marked by Machacova. With 10 laps to go, Schnider tried to get away again. Gebhardt chased her and the bunch came back together again. With 5 to go the Columbian Colmenares Yeny Lorena attacked. She almost made it to the line but got swollowed up by the bunch. It was Romanyuta who did the chasing again, securing 5 points. 

Elimination - The elimination race was fast and a little unnerving at times. With sprints every two laps, the riders had to avoid being the last over the line. Each bike was fitted with a red light that flashed when they were eliminated. Half way through the race, the Polish rider thought that the Swiss riders should have been eliminated. Despite her red light flashing, she stayed in the race for 5 laps before deciding that she should pull out. She slowed dramatically in the middle of the bunch forcing the rest to part rapidly. 

As the race progressed it became more technical for the riders and positioning was everything. With 10 riders left, the Australian

Post Race Comments

Tara Whitten (Canada) the 2010 Omnium World Champion chatted after her start to the Omnium event. "I was happy with the flying lap, thereís still five more events to go though. Iím just focusing on each event.Ē

Asked how she felt about the elimination being added? ďMaybe Iíll know better after tonight,Ē added Whitten

Marianne Vos (NED) chatted after the qualification, "Iím happy I qualified for the Omnium, but that was expected of course. The first flying lap, itís not really my piece of cake, but I rode the time I thought I would do. It was not good, but not bad either, so Iím happy with that. But yeah, itís going to be hard in the other events to get higher in the general,Ē said Vos

Vos discussed the level of the riders so early on in the season and said, ďI think the standard of racing is really high. Because itís the first World Cup. Itís Melbourne, everyone wants to be in good form here and itís the first year of Olympic qualification. So I think itís really high class of riding here now.Ē

Mel Hoskins (AUS) has just moved up to the senior ranks and is relishing the opportunity to race at her first world cup event, ďBesides junior worlds, this is my first major event racing for Australia. This is my sort of debut, World Cup, so first senior team, there were a few nerves on this morning thatís for sure.Ē

Asked if the Omnium something that she wants to target? Hoskins added, ďDefinitely now that itís an Olympic event. I guess it is that or team pursuit, I wanted to ride Team pursuit here, but at the end of the day the strongest girls were in there and itís something I also want to do but right now Iím happy with the world cup start. I ride a decent Omnium so itís something I can look forward to.Ē
