A brave move, almost from the gun, for Poland’s Malgorzata Wojtyra saw her charge away from the peleton and gain a lap with-out any reaction from here rivals. Well almost no one. After a couple of laps, Great Britain’s Laura Trott decided she would try & join Wojtyra & as the two made ground on the peleton they would be the only girls with a lap up.
With Laura in front of Malgorzata in the peleton over the line. She effectively wins the race, whilst Omnium leader Gillian Carleton only manages a ninth position. Trott now leads this competition by three points over Carleton with Belgium’s D’Hoore in third. One more race to decide the overall winner & the UCI Track World Cup leaders jersey.
