Winning the very first race on the brand new ADT event centre velodrome today was defending champion of the men's 17-18 year old Aaron Kacala (Cody Racing). It was Jared Downing (Major Motion) who took the honour of being the first rider out of the starting blocks on the new track, but Kacala's time of 1:07.898 later in the event was fast enough to take the win which adds to his already successful season, having won a Gold Medal at the Pan American Championships in May. Taking second place in the kilo today was Michael Schnabel (East Coast Velo)with a time of 1.09.248, with Daniel Holloway (Lombardi Sports/Klie) taking the Bronze medal.

In the men's 13-14 year old 500-meter time trial, it was Alex Coelho (Rio Grande) who clocked the fastest time to take the Gold medal. Coelho rode at 48.443km/h to beat out Alex Garcia (Major Motion) and Daniel Walker (NWCC/Alkek).

Finally, Tela Crane (Red Racing) took out the women's 17-18 years 500m time trial with a time of 39.802 just edging out Natalie Klemko (ABD) for the Gold medal with Kara Snyder (Vortex) taking Bronze.

Evening session

In the Junior Women's scratch race, Kimberly Geist (East Coast Velo) from Emmaus, Trexlertown, showed what a thorough Junior track program can produce. This year she graduated from the 15-16 age group to immediately become successful in the 17-18 category. She won the National title in the scratch in a time of 12:28.016 (36.095 km/h) from the morning's winner of the 500m, Tela Crane (Rad Racing NW) with Natalie Klemko (ABD) taking third place.

In the men's points race Chris Ruhl took home the stars and stripes jersey for the first time in the 17-18 category. Like Geist, Ruhl also moved up from the 15-16 age group category this year after having won the Scratch race last year.

Finally in the men's 17-18 Keiren final, Ryan Nelman (Cody Racing) took the win in a time of 11.456 (62.849 km/h). Taking the Silver medal for the second time in the day was Michael Schnabel (East Coast Velo) with his teammate Ben Barczewski taking the Bronze.
