Men's points race: Unstoppable Ignatiev blows away the field

Mikhail Ignatiev dominates

Russia's Mikhail Ignatiev put on a masterful display of endurance track racing at the Dunc Gray Velodrome in Sydney to win the men's 30km points score in utterly convincing fashion.

Perhaps it should be no surprise. After all, he has won the junior and senior world titles in the event, as well as the gold medal in Athens 2004. If Ignatiev arrives at the velodrome in good condition, then there could be little for the remainder of the field to do but follow his wheel or be relentlessly chased down, while the crowd can admire a rider who seems to be racing on another level (and no disrespect, Simoni-style, intended).

He dominated the majority of the Sydney race by either setting up breaks and then winning intermediate sprints with seeming ease, or then chasing down dangerous moves in the final quarter of the race, and also taking out further sprints.

He won with 31 points, 14 points clear of second-placed Greg Henderson of New Zealand, and Vasili Kiryienka of Belarus, the winner of the 15km scratch race the previous evening.

How it unfolded

The race got off to an interesting start when New Zealand's Greg Henderson almost rolled off the front of the bunch and spent a few laps riding at the front before the field settled down, as no rider showed any interest in joining him so early in the race.

The first serious attack came from Belgium's sole competitor at this track World Cup, Tim Mertens, who was joined by Germany's Henning Bommel. This looked promising enough for Ignatiev to make his move and he joined the two leaders with ease. Greece's Ioannis Tamouridis and Australian Sean Finning tried to bridge to the leaders but then the bunch started to ride much harder as Ignatiev was looking very strong, and he won the intermediate sprint with ease.

After the bunch regrouped, the Russian was a key member of another break that formed and it was this group that spent well over 30 laps with at least half a lap lead on what was left of the main field. Again Ignatiev was in there, along with Kiryienka, Volomodyr Rubin (Ukraine), Niki Terpstra (Netherlands), Angelo Ciccone (Italy), Henderson (New Zealand), Kam-Po Wong (Hong Kong) and Denys Kostyuk (Ukraine). In this group, where there were other riders willing to contribute to the work on the front, Ignatiev was able to save his legs - relatively - and ride the bunch off his wheel to take more intermediate sprints.

By half-race distance the bunch had started to eat into their lead, and Viryienka from Belarus tried his hardest to take an intermediate sprint, but again, Ignatiev rolled over the top of him on the back straight and further built on his lead. By this time other riders had managed to join the leaders and now this bunch was actually larger than the following group, and finally the field came back together but within two laps it had splintered again.

Tamouridis from Greece put in another attack but the bunch had started to react to almost any move off the front, while at the back the Australian, Finning, was struggling as the pace stayed consistently well above 50kmh. France's Mathieu Ladagnous was very active at the front but again, the blue shadow, Ignatiev, would hunt down anything that tried to get away. The field would re-group and other riders would try their luck, but again, the Russian would effortlessly bridge and close down the moves. The young Belgian rider, Mertens showed a willingness to attack and he worked with Ignatiev as they were joined by Zach Bell (Canada) and Daniel Kreutzfeldt (Denmark). Even with this constant chasing, Ignatiev was still taking the intermediate sprints, leading commentator Rik Fulcher to comment, "now he's just being greedy".

Indeed he was, as nobody it seemed, not even a seasoned professional like Greg Henderson, could do anything to make a dint on his lead in the points, or even think of taking a lap and claiming 20 points.

The Kiwi and Belgian rider were both very active in the latter quarter, but neither could either shake the Russian, or even take a sprint off him, as his strength allowed him to ride at the front for the lead-up laps to the majority of the intermediate sprints. The field could try but rarely could they come over the top of him on the home straight in the sprints.

With two sprints still remaining (20 laps to go), Ignatiev had 31 points, while the second-placed rider had only 12. And at that point of the race he still rode a high pace at the front in an effort to discourage any concerted attacks. In the final laps it was Mitch Docker of the Drapac-Porsche squad (one of the Australian professional teams entered) who led in front of Henderson, and the experienced Kiwi took out the final hard-fought sprint as the remainder of the field had to scrap over what was left of the race, as Ignatiev finished mid-field, still looking as comfortable as he started.

"Today I make a good day," he said in very broken English after the race. "I have two starts and two wins.

"I be in good shape now," he said, but with respect to the field he'd just blown off the boards, he said, "all the other riders may not be in such good shape. They have just come from an autumn and almost winter, and they are not very strong, I think.

"But I go to Australia for two weeks now, and that is good." Ignatiev had been training on the roads in and around Sydney, putting in 120km training rides and taking advantage of the warmer weather and longer days to arrive at Dunc Gray in splendid form.

This condition allowed him to back up so convincingly on a very long day of racing. "Right after the team race I go to the points race," he said almost matter-of-factly. "The first 20 laps I felt it was very hard and I was not so good, but then I am safer and better, so I go on the attack and finish strong." After receiving his silver medal for second place, Henderson said, "he's unbelievable, eh? He's in good nick at this time of year."

The Kiwi admitted to be under-geared for the event - though he wouldn't reveal just what gear he was riding - but he believed it was way too small for the day, especially with the Russian riding a larger gear that allowed him to stay at the front and keep a very high pace throughout.

The field completed the 30km in 35.33, at an average of 50.629 km/h.


Men's sprint: The battle of Britain

By Greg Johnson

British team-mates Craig McLean and Ross Edgar played out a hard-fought battle in the men's sprint gold medal final, with the former taking a narrow victory in the third round.

"It's always difficult [to race your team-mate] - you tend to be a little bit more relaxed and it's hard to get angry at your mate," explained McLean of the showdown.

McLean went one down in the opening race but sprung in the last corner of the second to win by a narrow margin - sending the showdown to a decider. Despite Edgar's best efforts, McLean controlled the decider down to the line and claimed the men's sprint World Cup lead.

"I'm very happy - especially after the first ride when I was one-nil down. I just didn't think I had it in my legs," said McLean. "I gave it everything in the second ride - gave him another bite of the cherry if you like - so it was do or die in the last effort."

Edgar was equally happy with the race: "It was a really good final - I enjoyed racing him and it was good racing. It feels more relaxed because you know him and have been around him. It allows you to get the best out of yourself."

The battle for bronze didn't have such a fairytale ending for host nation's Mark French. Despite a strong showing, the Victorian was easily overcome in two races by his superior Dutch opponent Teun Mulder - who took home the bronze medal.


Women's individual pursuit: Mactier takes solid victory

Australia's Katie Mactier made a dominate start to the women's 3000 metre individual pursuit final, taking an immediate 1.5 second lead on the opening lap, and holding out her British rival, Wendy Houvenhagel, to the finish line.

The Victorian looked unstoppable - drawing out a lead of over three seconds before her Science in Sport opponent began reducing the gap as the race drew to a close. Towards the finish, the Brit more than halved Mactier's lead, but couldn't overcome the Australian.

"The times aren't great - I'll be honest with you. The time, yeah it's not bad, I'm a little bit here-nor-there with it [but] I won," she explained. "We haven't had the preparation we would into a Commonwealth Games, Olympics or world championships. It's a World Cup so I've just got to be very mindful of that."

Mactier was satisfied with the gold medal winning time of 3.38.742 but expects the times to drop dramatically by the 2008 Olympic Games in Beijing.

"I tend to get stronger in the second half of my pursuit," explained Houvenhagel. "I was unaware of the difference between our times throughout the race, so I wasn't aware of exactly how far away I was."

In the bronze medal final, New Zealand's Alison Shanks started off on the wrong foot with a poor start leaving her trailing for the entire race. Shanks took back half of the 1.5 seconds the start cost her by mid-race distance, but wasn't able to continue the charge allowing Lithuania's Vilija Sereikaite to take out the race.


Men's team pursuit: Russians power to victory

In the gold medal ride-off, the Russian quartet of Mikhail Ignatiev, Ivan Rovny, Alexander Serov and Nikolai Trussov improved on their morning qualifying effort by nearly two seconds to beat Denmark with a winning time of 4.05.506.

Falling behind at the initial 500 metre time split, the Russian's smoothly increased the tempo to lead after four laps and from then on it was all one-way traffic as the gap steadily widened to over two seconds at the finish.

At one stage it looked as though the Danes might pull back the deficit when Trussov dropped off the back in the second half. However, Denmark then lost their starting rider, Jens Erik Madsen, in the closing stages but still managed to post a new national record of 4.07.659.

Danish national coach, Heiko Salzwedel, explained to Cyclingnews that he has high expectations for his young team: "We don't have too much time until Beijing and we want to win a medal there, that's our goal," he said.

"I knew that the boys had improved a lot but on the other hand it's only the first world cup so they didn't sparkle, last week we only did ten hours training and not much specific track preparation at all."

In the bronze medal race, Ukraine comfortably beat the Netherlands, clocking a time of 4.08.534.


Women's team sprint: Unstoppable sister act

Less than eight hours after breaking her own world record in the 500 metre time trial, Anna Meares and sister Kerrie took gold in the women's team sprint beating the German pairing of Jane Gerisch and Dana Gloss in a nail-biting encounter.

At the first lap time split the Germans were marginally ahead but with the Dunc Gray crowd going ballistic, Anna produced a storming final 200 metres to give the sisters victory by under half a second.

After the medal ceremony, Kerrie, the elder of the two, expressed her delight at the win, saying, "I'm very proud, it can't help having a world and Olympic champion sister chasing behind you, I've got to go fast!"

Anna acknowledged the crowd's influence: "From the zero count down it was just roar the whole way. Normally we're competing against each other and this time we were together with the crowd behind us as one, it was really nice."

Silver medalist Jane Gerisch explained to Cyclingnews how it was mentally tough for the German pair, knowing that Anna Meares was on world record form. "On the same day, you've got it on your mind, for sure," Gerisch said.

French pairing Virginie Cueff and Clara Sanchez took bronze for France with a convincing win over Italy's Annalisa Cucinotta and Elisa Frisoni.

Kerrie Meares will now head to the Oceania Championships in Melbourne next week where she expects to reach peak form while Anna hopes to beat her new world record in faster conditions at the worlds in Spain.

Said Meares, "I'm looking to better that for sure, this wasn't the ideal preparation or temperature and I think with the warm weather and a fast track it could be possible to go even faster."
