Phinney clocked a time of four minutes, 23.514 seconds in the qualifying round to establish the new record before beating Daniel Harm (Broadmark) in the gold medal final to win his second consecutive elite title in the individual pursuit and complement his kilometer time trial and team pursuit titles from earlier in the week. Third-place finisher Julian Kyer (RMCEF Racing) took the bronze medal ahead of Daniel Lionberg (Colorado State University) and also earned the U23 national championship.
