Tuesday 21st September Day 1

Day 1 of the British National Track Championships got underway this week with Women’s 500m Time Trial. Victoria Pendleton wins the Gold Medal with a time of 34.636 around 400’s second slower that last year & retains her title. Whilst last years Silver & Bronze medal winners swapped places. Rebecca James moves into the Silver Medal position with a PB time of 35.254 against 36.012 of last year & Jess Varnish collects the Bronze in a time of 35.283 just over last years of 35.154.

Next event was the Women’s Madison. Last years winners Alex Greenfield & Dani King didn’t ride together, but Dani partnered Ella Hopkins & together claimed the Silver Medal. The 2010 Champions are Hannah Barnes & Hannah Walker with Harriet Owens & Laura Trott to collecting the Bronze Medal.

The final concluding event of the evening was the Open Team Sprint. Sky Track Cycling, consisting of Matt Crampton, Jason Kenny & Ross Edgar set the quickest qualifying time earlier on in the proceedings & went on to take the Gold Medals. City of Edinburgh put up a brave fight to claim Silver, whilst Science in Sport beat off a gallant effort by Team Terminator by 200’s second to claim Bronze.
