Ev3      UCI Sprint – Quarter Final  Men


Jason Kenny, Callum Skinner, Matt Crampton & Jonathon Mitchell progress through to the Semi Finals. Scotland’s Jonathon Mitchell made an early sprint for the line in his Heat, catching his opponent Lewis Oliver out.


Desperate to win after been caught out in the previous round of the Longest Lap. Orica GreenEdge’s Adam Blythe positioned himself confidently once more close to the start/ finish line. As his opponents fell one-by-one the whistle blew, and the dash around the track began. It’s was Team USN’s Joe Holt that got away quicker and sprinted to the line for the win to deny Blythe the glory.

There was a steady start to the eighty lap Women’s Points Race. Lizzie Armitstead instigated the run up to the line for the first points of the race, but Scotland’s Charline Joiner denied her the full five on offer. Dame Sarah Storey made a bid for the next set of points on offer, but Team USN’s Emily Kay, Manon Lloyd and Emily Nelson soaked up the top three positions.

The star of the session, Lizzie Armitstead took the remaining top places except one (Kay), lapping the field three times in the end. On her way to the finish line, a strong ride from Emily Kay and Dame Sarah Storey whom also lapped the field twice, whilst Emily Nelson managed one additional lap.

Armitstead distance the field for the last sprint, demonstrating a master class in Track Cycling. She was simply in a league of her own, and reportedly saying that the Track felt very fast to herself, although apart from the previous round at Manchester, she hadn’t rode the Track in over a year.
