Ok, I didn't want to admit it before racing, but the event last night, the Omnium, was the one I really wanted to win. I needed to win it. 5 events in 6 hours. Long night.
On the international scene, this is the event where I can be competitive. I had to win it here at Nationals to prove it to myself and others.
The race starts with a 200m time trial, the a scratch race, then a 2k pursuit, then a points race, and then a 500m time trial. For those who don't know much about track cycling, this is similar to the pentathlon in track and field. It determines the best all-around track cyclist.
200m- 1st place
Scratch- 1st place
Pursuit- 2nd place
Points- 4th place
500m- 1st place
My biggest supporter! I think he was more exhausted then me and he has to race today too.
Podium: Christen King 5th, Anna Lang 4th, Heather Jackson 3rd, Theresa Cliff-Ryan 2nd, Cari Higgins 1st. That was some tough competition!
