NZ sprinter Andrew in sight of UCI track series title
Keirin world champion cyclist Ellesse Andrews will take a slim advantage into the final night of competition in the UCI Track Champions Series in London.
Andrews has a seven-point advantage in the women’s sprint after four out of five nights of competition, which features a select invitational field in a series with stops in Mallorca, Berlin, Paris and London.
The sprint competition includes the individual sprint with qualifying, a three-way semi-final and a traditional two-wheeler head-to-head final, as well as a keirin with qualifying and a final.
Andrews failed to qualify for the sprint final for the first time, but won her way into the keirin final, where she took the lead with a lap and a half remaining, only to be beaten at the line by Martha Bayona.
The Colombian finished second to Andrews in the keirin world championship final in Glasgow.
New Zealand has 133 points to take a seven-point advantage over rising German prospect Alessa-Catriona Propster in the overall sprint competition with the second night of racing at the Lee Valley Velodrome in London tomorrow to conclude the series competition .
Earlier, New Zealand’s Sam Dakin finished fifth with a valiant effort in the men’s keirin final after entering the final straight after a brave attack after a lap and a half.
He finished fifth on points for the sprint competition with teammate Callum Saunders in eighth and Emma Cumming was 12th overall from the endurance round, which included scratch and elimination races.
