After a fabulous night of racing Friday night, racers were treated to a sunny day full of fantastic racing. Saturday was the match sprints. Racers endured a long day of racing made tougher due to 103 degree temperatures in the infield. Racers from Arizona, California, Washington and Canada attended this round of the Aerican Velodroem Challenge with names like kenny Williams, Keith Bruneua, Scott Laliberte and Ryan Miller making their marks in the match sprints. The biggest upset was when Ryan Miller beat Kenny Williams (multiple national champion) in the semi finals and went into the finals with Keith Bruneau (Dr Walker) of Canada. In the finals, Keith Bruneau won the day. In the women's competetion, Annette Hansen (Rubicon) was a dominant force Saturday.
