Friday Evening Session


Scotland’s Jenny Davis lead the first race at the Lee Valley VeloPark in the early stages of the Women’s Omnium Event for Revolution 45. The Flying Lap, contested by fifteen girls were the first to taste the 2012 Olympic boards in competition since that magic event.

There was a big applause for Dani King as she was announced to the public when beginning her lap and the Wiggle Honda rider managed second place so far, much to the delight of the crowd.

Spain’s Leire D Olaberria, the penultimate rider, quickly slipped into first place with the first sub fourteen second lap.

Hugh Porter’s announcement that Laura Trott was the last contestant begging her lap, saw the crown explode into rapture. The noise generated around the Velodrome on the two warm-up circuits were nothing compared to her Flying Lap that put Wiggle Honda’s Trott in the lead for the Omnium after round one.

This final race of the Friday Evening’s session was round three of the UCI Women’s Omnium, The crowds favourite, The Elimination Race.

Knowing the tactics of a certain Laura Trott, the crowd were in for another thrilling display of bike handling. The race got underway and soon whittled down to the usual suspects. Trott, King, Archibald, Olaberria. Trott who always seems to find herself at the back of the bell elimination lap had the spectators on the edges of their seats through-out the race thus far.

But disaster for the last three, Trott, King, & Archibald who were sprinting for the last two slots, brought the race to an early conclusion as King and Archibald came together across the finish line and fell heavily into the track floor. This was the only crash of the evening luckily, but both girls laid still for quite a while, as the paramedics rushed around to check their conditions. Luckily, King got up soon after, with Archibald then following to a much relieved audience, and a round of applause. Trott had been further up the track and out of harms way.

Trott leads the Omnium so far after wining the first three rounds with three points only to her credit. Olaberria is second with eight points, & King is third with nine points.
