European Track Championships day 5: Trott rides away with omnium gold

Archibald claims individual pursuit title, Keleman wins keirin

Laura Trott rode away with the women's Omnium Sunday evening at the European Track Championships, finishing second in the 500m time trial, winning the flying lap an adding t her winning buffer in the points race Trott beat Denmark's Amalie Didericksen by 36 points and bronze medalist Ausrine Trebaite (France) by 46.

There was more success for Great Britain in the women's individual pursuit as Katie Archibald took the gold medal and Ciara Horne the bronze.

Reigning champion Archibald set a blistering time in the qualifying rounds and reproduced it in the gold medal ride, where she got off to a far superior start to her opponent Elise Delzenne of France. She was already 1.4 seconds up after 1km and that only increased to 3.5 seconds by the time she stopped the clock on 3:32.832.

Horne went up against Germnay's Mieke Kroger in the bronze medal ride and it soon became clear she was heading for bronze, finishing on 3:35.288.

Archibald scored gold again in the women's Elimination race, taking the European title ahead of Annalisa Cucinotta (Italy) and Irene Usabiaga Balerdi (Spain).

In the men's Keirin final, Czech Republic's Pavel Keleman upset world champion Francois Pervis to take the gold, with the French world champion having to settle for silver ahead of Russian Denis Dmitriev.

Netherlands Elis Ligtlee took the women's keirin gold, winning the final round ahead of Virginie Cueff (France) and Russia's Ekaterina Gnidenko.

Spanish riders Sebastian Mora and Albert Torres win the men's Madison race, coming in a lap ahead of Russia's Mikhail Radionov and Andrey Sazanov, followed by Morgan Kneisky and Bryan Coquard of France.

Morning session

Laura Trott's bid for a third gold medal at the European Track Championships in Grenchen continued strongly on Sunday as she extended her lead in the Omnium after the 500 metre time trial.

The Great Britain rider clocked 35.394 to finish second in the event behind France's Laurie Barthon (35.313), with Poland's Malgorzata Wojtrya in third.

Amalie Dideriksen (Denmark) finished a disappointing eighth and as such Trott, now on 156 points, leads the omnium after four events by 24 points. Berthon is in third on 120 with the final two events coming up in the evening session.

Day 5 also saw the derny called into action for the opening rounds of the men's and women's Keirin.

World champion Francois Pervis (France) endured a nervy progression to the semi-final, having to resort to the repechages. The Frenchman was caught way behind in his initial heat but came back to show his class by winning the repechage. Only the winner of each heat would progress to the semi-final and Joachim Eliers (Germany), Nikita Shurshin (Russia), Christos Volikakis (Greece), Pavel Keleman (Czech Republic), Mateusz Lipa, and Krzysztof Maksel (both Poland) earned that privilege.

Britain's Jason Kenny was one of the men to advance from the repechages, along with Pervis and his French compatriot Michael D'Almeida, Thomas Babek of the Czech Republic, Denis Dmitriev of Russai, and Spain's Sergio Aliaga.

The women's Keirin was structured slightly differently in that the top two riders in each heat progressed to the semi-finals, with the top three from each repechage joining them.

German Kristina Vogel won the first heat, Elis Ligtlee of Holland the second, and France's Vigrinie Cueff the third, with second-placed riders Helena Casas (Spain), Ekaterina Gnidenko (Russia), and Tania Calvo Barbera (Spain) joining them in gaining swift qualification.

There were two repechage races, with Lyubov Basova (Ukraine), Urszula Los (Poland), and Katy Marchant (Great Britain) progressing from the first, and Anastasiia Voinova (Russia), Olivia Montauban (France), and Katarzyna Kirchenstein (Poland) from the second.

The morning session also saw the women's individual pursuit qualifying heats, with the riders competing for a spot in the gold or bronze medal rides later today.

Defending European champion Katie Archibald made a real statement of intent with a storming time of 3:31.959, and was joined in the final by her Great Britain teammate Ciara Horne (3:36.735).

Elise Delzenne of France set the second fastest time of 3:36.047 and will face Archibald for the gold medal, while Horne will go up against Germany’s Mieke Kroger (3:37.744) for bronze.
