Day 4 - Trott and Meares take Gold

Melbourne, Australia

Race Writeup

Keirin 

Anna Meares (AUS) won the Keirin in front of an home crowd. Meares never looked troubled in the final. Her form in the sprint competition had indicated that she was fast. Based on form, Kristina Vogel (GER) and Shuang Guo (CHN) were the only ones who could match Meares. In the end, it was all about position and Meares took the front at the bell and held her speed to the line. In the battle for silver and bronze, the relatively unknown Ekaterina Gnidenko (RUS) found space and crossed the line second ahead of Vogel.

Second Round

The first of the two second round match-ups certainly delivered some surprise results. In the first race, Meares never really looked troubled and easily won through to the final. In the second race, Clare Sanchez (FRA) won but both Pendleton and Krupeckaite got boxed in on the final bend and ended up 5th and 6th respectively.

Omnium 

Laura Trott (GBR) was one of the favourites coming into the championships and certainly delivered. The pocket rocket, played it tactically in the scratch and her form ensured she held her own in the time trial to win gold. Annette Edmondson (AUS) secured second fastest in the time trial to win silver in her first world championships. Sarah Hammer (USA) secured her medal in the scratch race. Finishing ahead of the 2011 champion Tara Whitten (CAN), it was just down to the time trial and Hammer finished ahead of Whitten to secure Bronze. 

Trott, picked up her second world title of the week, alongside the women's team pursuit title she helped to win on Thursday. The 19-year-old has yet to stand anywhere on the podium except at the top: all six medals she has now won at senior European and world level since emerging in 2010 have been gold, and she has turned the omnium's elimination race into her own entertaining signature event.

Scratch - Olaberria Dorronsoro wins, Trott in overall

With all to nine points separating the top four the positioning in the scratch race was critical. The start was delayed due to a mechanical problem with the Cubans bike. When they did get started attack after attack went  during the 40 lap race. Eventually one stuck and a lead group of 8 riders formed. The main race was inthe chase group though. Trott and Edmondson were marking each others moves and Hammer and Whitten were doing the same thing.

At the bell, Hammer attacked the chase group to ensure she finished ahead of Whitten. Trott managed to finish ahead of Edmondson to secure a 2 point overall advantage with one event left.

Time Trial

The final event in the Omnium was exhilarating. With only 2 points between first and second one between 3rd and 4th, there was everything to ride for. 

Sarah Hammer (USA) was in the driving seat for her ride against Whitten and finished .120 seconds off the pace of Hammer. 

In the race that counted, Laura Trott (GBR) showed incredible strength to win in the fastest time 35.173 seconds ahead of Annette Edmondson (AUS) who rode a 35.180 second ride for Silver

Comments

Laura Trott (GBR) has set herself an incredible task to repeat her wins in Londn,  "I think I'm setting myself up well for London," said Trott  "To come here and win the omnium is massive for me. I've never been in that position [of going] into the last event winning. It was really hard on my head but I got myself fired up for it. Me and my coach Paul Manning have been doing a lot of work, watching back the races that I haven't done so well in, and it's paid off. I improved on the points race, which was that extra margin I needed from the London World Cup," added Trott.
