Burnaby Velodrome Series #2

Burnaby, BC, February 15/16, 2003

Home track rider scoops omnium

By Gordon Ross

North America's only indoor velodrome was host to two days of intense competition, with the Burnaby Velodrome Race Series #2 event on February 15/16, 2003. Riders from across Canada and the neighbouring US states of Washington and Oregon came to compete under the recently replaced air supported roof at the Harry Jerome Sports Centre in Burnaby, BC, Canada.

In the men's Category A races, the Omnium was won by Vancouver rider Murray Solem (Epic/Schwalbe). Racing on his home track, Solem collected points in all events, placing 1st in the Miss-n-out and 3rd in the Keirin to clinch the title. Local mountain bike professional Andreas Hestler (Rocky Mountain Bicycles) made his track debut with a strong performance, winning the 3000M pursuit by riding an impressive 3:48:63 time and placing 3rd in the Omnium.

Canadian National Team members were present throughout the events, with junior road team member Marsh Cooper riding a series of agressive races, including a 2nd in the Miss-n-out and 4th in the Points Race; Keith Bruneau won the Keirin; and Cam Mackinnon won the Kilo. The weekend racing marked the finale of a Canadian National Team training camp. National Team coach Kurt Innes brought riders from the Olympic Oval in Calgary and across Canada to spend the week training on the 200m track in Burnaby.

US riders were also well represented with a strong showing from Oregon's Team Rubicon, taking the #2 and #4 spots in the Men's A Omnium. US National Track Champ and World Masters Track Champ, Kenny Williams (Saturn of Bellevue) was only able to participate in the event on Saturday. This didn't stop Williams from winning all three events he entered, the Scratch Race, Points Race, and Sprints.

In the Men's B Group, it was all David Goosen of dEVO/Ryders/Powerbar. Goosen dominated the racing by winning the Omnium with first place finishes in the Scratch, Miss-n-Out, Points Race, and Keirin events. Scott Crump (Lactic Acid), second in the Men's B Group, had an outstanding weekend. The 15 year-old demonstrated lots of potential with some great bursts of speed that caught quite a few of his competitors off-guard.

The next Burnaby Velodrome Race Series will be in May 2003. Please check the Burnaby Velodrome website for more details.
