Men's Pursuit 65+:Bob Kaye Completes A Hat Trick

Bob Kaye completed a hat trick of medals when he sped to victory in the 2,000m pursuit for the age category sixty-five plus. In the morning qualifying rides Kaye from the USA established a world master best time for the eight laps of 2min 35.231sec only to see Germany's Otto Altweck shave a further 0.119 off.

In the final Altweck set a hot pace only to run out of steam with just two laps remaining when Kaye caught him and inched ahead on the line finishing in 2min 34.229sec 00.233sec to snip another 0.893sec. Roy Manser from Maidstone had a fast start in the ride off for the bronze slowly Bryan Bliss slowly clawed his way back but ran out of time. Manser recorded 2min 42.081sec to win by 0.521

Men's Pursuit 60-65: South takes pursuit crown with ease

David South smoothly pedalled his way to gold in the 2,000m pursuit for the age category sixty to sixty-four plus. The Australian covered the eight laps in 2min 30.534sec, over three seconds ahead of the runner-up James Murdock of the USA. This was Murdock's third silver medal of the championships. The ride off for bronze was an all-British affair with Brian Dacey from Epsom proving to fast for his rival Maidstone's James Murdock. Dacey's time of 2min 37.374sec was nearly four seconds ahead of Murdock.

Men's Pursuit 55-59: Lehman Wins Pursuit Crown

Steven Lehman beat the favourite to win the 2,000m pursuit in the age Category fifty-five to fifty-nine.

In the morning qualifying ride Australia's Denis Fahey set a World Masters best time of 2min24.569sec but could not repeat the ride in the final. Fahey led through-out to win by two seconds in 2min 25.835sec inside the previous best.

Willi Moore, who in his younger days represented Great Britain in all major competitions and won medals as a member of the team pursuit at the Olympic, Worlds and Commonwealth Games, last night won the bronze. His rival Lawrence Bosch headed him over the opening kilometre but Moore from Frodsham came back strongly over the second half of the race to win by over two seconds in 2min 28.33sec.

Men's Pursuit 50-54: Hallam Completes A Hat-Trick

Ian Hallam brought his tally of wins to three when he won the 2,000m individual pursuit for the age category fifty to fifty-four last night.

The flying dentist from Waterlooville covered the eight laps in 2min 22.841sec to retain his title by nearly four seconds from fellow Brit Steve Davies from Darlington. This was Hallam's twelfth world master's gold medal ten from the track and two from the road.

In the ride off for the bronze medal Patrick Gallineau stopped British riders making a clean sweep of all three medals when he got the better of Bradford's Neil Arnold by 1.409sec with a time of 2min 29.403sec.

Men's Pursuit 45-49 Bostick Recaptures Title

Kent Bostick has recaptured the pursuit title in the age category forty-five to forty-nine.

The American last won the title three years ago. His rival Sheffield's Bernardo Figueroa was within one second of Bostick in the qualifying ride but could offer no serious opposition in the ride for gold and silver. Bostick caught his rival after just two minutes of the race. Bostick carried on to finish the twelve laps in 3min 38.097sec.

Andy Laing of West Lothian produced a storming last lap to snatch the bronze medal from the grasp of Clive Burr from Altringham. Burr who was runner up twelve months ago qualified in third place put could not repeat his time and had to settle for fourth place. Laing's time of 3min 47.865sec was 0.159 ahead.

Men's Pursuit 40-44: Wallace Collects Title And Two Best Times

Shaun Wallace has won the 3,000m pursuit for the age category forty to forty-four.

The California-based British rider established a world masters best time of 3min 31.690sec in the qualifying round over five seconds ahead of his nearest rival. In the final his rival and fellow Brit Charles McCulloch from Knutsford could not match in speedy Wallace. Wallace finished nearly seven seconds ahead in his second world masters best time of 3min 29.905sec.

In a very closely-fought contest for the bronze Australia's Robert Upton runner up twelve months ago managed to get the upper hand winning in 3min 40.185sec to finish 0.603sec ahead of Victor Williams from the USA.

Men's Pursuit 35-39: Williams Wins All-American final

Kenny Williams has collected his second title the 3,000m pursuit for the thirty-five to thirty-nine age category.

In an all American final Williams was soon closing down of his rival Douglas Beck. He caught Beck in 2min 40.35sec and continued to try and establish a world masters best time but over the final two laps his pace eased and he failed by just over one second to break the figures set by another American Chris Carlsen four years ago when he recorded 3min 27.036sec.

Defending champion Robert Veroba from Canada had to settle for third place this time around. Londoner Paul Mill gave him a close race until the final 1,000m when the elastic snapped and the Canadian went on to take bronze in 3min 31.898sec by just over five seconds.

Men's Pursuit 30-34: Taylor Wins World Masters Gold

Bryan Taylor had to fight hard for his victory in the 3,000m individual pursuit for the age category thirty to thirty-four at the 8th World Masters Track Championships which are being held at the Manchester Velodrome all this week.

His opponent Peter Coulson from the USA set out to try and catch Taylor who had qualified in first place over five seconds ahead. But slowly Taylor started to reel his rival in. With just one lap remaining the gap was down to three-quarters of a second. Cheered on Taylor put everything into the final metres to snatch gold by 0.464sec in 3min 33.824sec.

In an all British ride for third and fourth Julian Ramsbottom the flying postman from Scunthorpe had too much speed for his rival Stockport's Paul Dotchin. Ramsbottom recorded 3min 38.869sec to win the bronze medal by over five seconds.
