The final of the Keirin at Trackfest



Under perfect conditions, the first Trackfest of the season took place last weekend at the West Shore Velodrome in Colwood with some impressive results from the Russ Hays Accent Inns/Pacific Cycling Centre Development Team.

The two-day event featured some exciting racing and podium results for the team. Alex Amiri came 1st in the U19 Match Sprint, 1st in the U19 Team Sprint, 1st in the U19 Omnium, 1st in the points race, 1st in the 3km individual pursuit,  2nd in the flying lap 200m, 2nd in the 1km TT and 4th in the scratch race.

Andrew Grant was 1st in the Keirin A and 2nd in the U19 Omnium. “I managed to put in some of my best rides this year in the Keirin and Omnium.   I was overall very happy with the weekend”, he commented.  Andrew was also 1st in the flying 200, 2nd in the pursuit, 2nd in the points race, 3rd in the scratch, 4th in the elimination, and 1st in the kilo.

Khyl Orser raced well over the two days placing 3rd in the Keirin and posting a 12:43 in the Flying 200. “In the matched sprints, I beat Andrew to go to the semi-finals then lost to Tony from Marymoor to battle for 3rd/4th where I lost two matches to Alex Hui,” he said. “There was a lot to learn and absorb quickly. I feel that I did my best, I raced hard and I made a lot of mistakes. It’s all great experience, though, and I will learn from it.”

Other results over the weekend from the team included Evan Carey finishing 2nd in the TT and 3rd in the scratch race. Rachel Carey was very impressive with three 1st place finishes - in the U17 – 500 Metres, U19 scratch race and the Keirin. She also came 3rd in the Women’s sprint final.
