Alpenrose velodrome, July 19-21

Records fall in big weekend at Alpenrose

Day 1

The richest weekend in track racing in the United Stated got under way today. The first day of the AVC at the Alpenrose Dairy in Portland, Oregon is over and already one track record has fell by the wayside. In the morning session, Mike Tillman stole the show with a time of 4:54.23 beating Chris Carlson's 5 year track mark of 4:54.87 in the 4k pursuit. While Erin Mirabella was on pace to do the same thing to the women's record, also set in 1997, she was unable to hold her first half pace. However, her final time of 4:03.85 was still good enough to beat the field by 10 seconds.

The afternoon session produced more sizzling times, despite the cool temperatures. Jeff LaBauve just missed breaking Marty Nothsteins track record in the kilo with the 2 all time Alpenrose mark of 1:09.22 to easily handle a quality field that also included Josh Weir, Jeff Hopkins and Mike Tillman who all broke the 1:14 mark. In the women's 500 meter time trial Suzie Tigor just edged JoAnne Kiesanowski by two tenths to win with a 39.84 second time. That set the stage for the Mens points race qualifier for the final 13 spots in the mass start events on Saturday and Sunday.

The points race started as a sprint battle between Kent Johnston and Erin Mirabella, who was getting some extra training in before battling with the women tomorrow. After the middle sprint for double points, John Simmons and young junior rider John Long broke away to steal the next three sprints. After a long battle to pull them in, the field pulled even coming around the final corner, but Erin and Kent could not top JoAnne Kiesanowski's final sprint which meant John Simmons won the race.

That sets the stage for some exciting action tomorrow, including the Men's sprints and Jeff LaBauve going for the other track record that Marty holds at Alpenrose, the 200 meter at 11.44 seconds. Look for Marty Nothstein's attempt at breaking the track's 10-mile record of 20:40.78 which was just set last year by Kenny Williams from Seattle. The women will be in action with a points race, miss-n-out and keirin.

Day 2

Another day of racing and another track record in the books. This time it was Jeff LaBauve's 200 meter time of 11.3 seconds, knocking a full tenth of Marty Nothstein's old record of 11.44. Tomorrow will be interesting with the Flying lap and Olympic sprint records at stake. Also the women's 200 meter time could fall with super speedster JoAnne Kiesanowski. Remember yesterday, she destroyed the mens points racers in the final sprint of the night.

Today's top action had to be the Men's Sprints, which saw Jame Carney, Steven Alfred and Jeff LaBauve in a three up. Jame quickly bowed out as Steven and Jeff hit top speed and Steven gave Jeff a mighty hook coming out of corner 4. Although they nearly locked bars at 40 plus miles an hour Steven was able to hold his position and come across the line first. Although in a grudge match for a large crowd prime afterwards Jeff was able to even the score. Hopefully we can see them settle the result at next years event.

Earlier in the day Marty Nothstein started the day by taking the first lap, many in the middle and the final lap of the day to win the 10 mile scratch race (with lap primes every lap). Although he was just shy of the track record he was the fastest of the 8 riders who lapped the field. The Miss-n-out saw John Walrod give it everything he had as he got a gap and let Jame sit on as Mike Tillman and Nothstein tried to chase him down. And then we he was caught he did it again to take the win.

In the final event of the night and with a great show of speed Tillman and Nothstein teamed up to take two laps on everyone but Walrod and Carney in a very fast Madison. It looked it might be close at first, especially after Carney and Walrod recovered after a missed exchange to take a flyer from the group. But after Tillman and Nothstein bridged up and the top two teams got their first lap of the night, Tillman and Nothstein kept going for another.

The women's races saw a lot of action tonight as well. In the Keirin final Norrene Godfrey took a huge flyer after the motor pulled off and a lap later Suzie Tignor bridged up all by herself. As Norrene pulled off Suzie kept going and got the win over a hard charging Erin Mirabella. In the Miss-n-out JoAnne Kiesanowski once again showed how difficult she will be tomorrow by taking the sprint over Ashley Kimmet and Erin Mirabella who was relegated.

The best action of the night for the women came in the prime heavy points race. With the Team Rubicon team sending riders up the road one at a time, and snagging $40 primes in the process, JoAnne and Erin were happy to take 2nds and 3rds for much of the race to set up the final sprint. With JoAnne leading the race and everyone together at the end it looked like it was all over. However, Erin went long for the final sprint and took Ashley Kimmet with her to space the points just enough to knock JoAnne out of first and grab the win with Ashley in 3rd.

Day 3

Two more records fall on the final day of action starting with Jeff Labauve setting a new flying lap record of 15.24 to go with his new 200 meter record. Then Suzy Tignor, JoAnne Kiesanowski and Erin Mirabella teamed up to shatter the womens olympic sprint record by a two seconds with a 1:01.90. It was a great weekend and the thousands of spectators who came were once again able to see the top riders in the world compete at the Alpenrose Dairy.
