UCI Track Worlds: Van Schip claims points race world title

Jan van Schip (Netherlands) secured his first world title in the men's Points Race, dominating the evening race from start to finish. Van Schip was one of four riders to lap the field three different times, patiently timing his forays off the front to scoop up maximum points. In all, the Dutchman won six separate sprints to end the race with a massive 104 points to claim gold over Sebastian Mora (Spain).

The bronze medal came down to finishing position, with Ireland's Mark Downey tied on points with Wojciech Pszczolarski (Poland) coming into the sprint. Downey followed a surge to finish fifth in the final sprint to the Pole's 12th to round out the podium.

The women's Omnium kicked off with a victory by young Italian Letizia Paternoster in the scratch race. She beat Australia's Annette Edmondson and Jen Valente (USA) to take the early lead.

The tempo race saw a surprise win by Yumi Kajihara (Japan) in the tempo race. Kajihara topped Rushlee Buchanan (New Zealand) and Ina Savenka (Belarus) to take the lead in the overall standings. In the elimination race, however, Kajihara made an early exit, finishing seventh and dropping down the rankings.

Valente raced with surgical precision, making the final sprint against Kirsten Wild (Netherlands) and then winning with a well-timed dive down the banking.

Paternoster fought valiantly to hold on for third in the elimination, taking the overall lead with 104 points, with Wild two points down in second and Kajihara third with 98. Valente's win moved her back into fourth at 92 points.

Wild went on to win secure the overall victory in the points race, claiming four more points than Paternoster to push the Italian into the silver medal position.

The points race was a marred by a crash between Valente and Britain's Katie Archibald, but the American bounced back, escaping in the final with Danish rider Amalie Dideriksen to secure bronze.
