Men's 30km Points Race

Ignatiev grins his way to gold

Yet another of the first-year senior riders, Russia's Mikhail Ignatiev, showed speed and maturity beyond his years to win gold in the men's 30km points race ahead of the Ukraine's Volodymyr Rybin and New Zealand's Greg Henderson.

Only one point separated first and second at the end of a fast points race that saw several attempts to lap the field. The first to make a serious effort to lap the field was Jukka Heinikainin, who got to within 20 metres of the field but lost contact when the bunch accelerated for the third intermediate sprint with 90 laps to go. The Finn sat up as the pace stayed and he rejoined the field, leaving the sprinters among the points racing specialists to battle it out for the intermediate sprints.

The USA's Colby Pearce also put in a few serious attempts to go clear but the field would not let any rider get more than half a lap ahead. The race could have been determined by the final sprint, except a group of three riders took advantage of some hesitation among the leaders and went clear with three laps to go. Austria's Franz Strocher, Lithuania's Tomas Vaitkus and Australia's Darren Young stayed clear of the chasing field and the Australian took the final sprint.

Back in the field, Ignatiev had maintained his position and came across the line as the winner with 47 points, Rybin with 46 and Henderson on 41.

Ignatiev said the win made up for the disappointment of qualifying fifth fastest in the men's 4km individual pursuit, an event was won by his sparring partner from last year's world junior track and road championships, Australia's Mark Jamieson.

Although Ignatiev said he is concentrating on the points race for this year, he did not ride conservatively the previous day. He also wanted to ride well in the IP but just did not have the form on the day.

Earlier in the day of session 2, Ignatiev was part of Russia's team pursuit squad, which qualified in fifth place, a "warm up" for the points race, he said. The Russian could not stop from grinning when he was on the podium, which he later explained was due to the out-of-date Russian anthem that was played out.

The slightly built teen is developing into one of the world's premier endurance cyclists, with the points race in the world championships his primary goal for this year.

Wolff takes Germany's second gold

Germany clearly remains a force in world sprinting as Rene Wolff demonstrated in the final of the Men's Sprint, where he defeated Australian teenager Mark French 2-0 in their best-of-three sprint heats.

Earlier in the session, French showed blistering speed to take Jens Fiedler out of the equation, by challenging the German champion in the quarter finals and winning the heats 2-1. Even with the loss of their premier sprinter, the Germans still had a world-class performer in Wolff who showed superior tactics and speed to defeat the young Australian in the battle for the gold medal.

However, the final heat was French's twelfth sprint for the day and the effort had taken the edge off his explosiveness. Wolff also had to compete in nine sprint heats to make it to the final, as the world cup formula forces the sprinters to qualify and contest all their heats in one day of competition. In world championships, the sprinters qualify and race up to quarter finals, then contest the semi-finals and finals on the following day.

"It was not easy," Wolff said afterwards. "He (French) had two heats more than me, but it was also hard for me. I am in good condition and it helped me through."

French said, "I put in 120 percent every time. In the last (heat), I gave it everything I had." In both heats of the final, the German made a jump before the bell lap and the Australian dug deep to counter, but he could not come around the outside.

Earlier in the session French had the crowd on its feet with his electrifying encounters with Fiedler, the multiple world champion who won the men's keirin the previous evening.

"It's an honour to race him," the Australian teenager said of his encounters with Fiedler, "let alone beat him. I really did enjoy racing him and I'm happy with that." In the ride-off for bronze, England's Ross Edgar also thrilled the crowd with his ride when he came around the outside of hard-charging Kiyofumi Nagai of Japan to take the second heat and the medal.

Men's 4km Teams Pursuit

New Zealand shows depth in the endurance events

The New Zealand team achieved a polished victory in the final of the Men's 4km Teams Pursuit on the second day of competition at the Dunc Gray Velodrome in Sydney, host of the fourth and final round of the 2003 UCI Track World Cup.

The Kiwis won the final against Germany with a time of 4.10.307, while the German team struggled with only three riders for much of the 4km event.

One of the German team dropped off the back with nine laps to go and although the three remaining members of the team managed to keep pace with the New Zealand squad, they could only hold it for a few laps. Displaying smooth teamwork, the New Zealand squad came home strongly, while Germany trailed in over four seconds behind.

In the ride-off for the bronze medal, a young Australian squad rode 4.12.540 to win the bronze against Denmark. The Australian team included one junior, 17 year-old Chris Pascoe, as well as Mark Jamieson, who put in two-lap turns on the front to drive the squad home.

In fact, the Australian team was made up of the same riders who represented their country in the 2002 world junior track championships. NSW coach Gary Sutton said the squad also achieved their fastest time in this bronze medal race, their first-ever race at the senior level.

Ulmer dominates final

New Zealand's Sarah Ulmer delivered an ominous warning to the world's female endurance cyclists with a convincing win over Lithuania's Diana Ziliute in the 3km Individual Pursuit at Dunc Gray Velodrome.

"It was great to do it front of a near-home crowd," said the relieved Kiwi rider, 'near-home' being a reference to the Sydney facility, which is hosting the fourth round of the UCI Track World Cup.

"I've got a few mates here," she said. Indeed, there was an abundant supply of vocal New Zealanders within the near full-house crowd on Saturday night's competition that urged Ulmer on as she erased the Lithuanian's early lead.

Ziliute took an early lead in the first lap and then built it up to 1.258 seconds after several laps of the 12-lap event. But then Ulmer began to pick up the pace and lifted to be only three tenths of second behind with five laps to go. With four to go, the New Zealander had taken the lead and from there built up to win comfortably with a time of 3.39.553, slower than her very competitive qualifying time in the morning session.

Ulmer said she felt that the Lithuanian also lifted her pace in the closing stages of the race. On the bike, Ulmer showed virtually no upper-body movement; her legs were doing all the work. In contrast, Ziliute, who is a former world champion of the road, looked a little more ragged and uneven, but still pushed the Kiwi all the way to the finish.

Ulmer confirmed her rank as one of the world's leading pursuiters and is definitely on track for the world championships, to be held in Stuttgart later this year.

With her smooth style, Ulmer defies the effort that is going into the pedals. However, the rider certainly felt it. "I was tapped," she said. Instead of racing professionally on the road in the US this year, Ulmer has stayed in New Zealand and in concentrating on her training for the track.

"I'm still building," Ulmer said of her current condition, "and there's an intense block of training to come" before she heads off to Germany in August.

In the ride-of for the bronze medal, Australia's Amy Safe easily accounted for Holland's Anouska Van Der Zee, with a time of 3.41.874. One of the favourites for the women's IP, France's Marion Clignet, a former world champion in this event, qualified fifth in the morning and said the effort to win the silver medal in the points race the previous evening had taken its toll. In fact, Clignet is pushing the UCI to change the schedule of events in the world cups to place the IP on the first day of competition, and then run the points race on the following day.

Ulmer, who also competed in the points race but did not win a medal, said it was difficult to win both events, given that qualifying for the IP was held on the morning immediately after the points race, which finished at 8pm.

Women's Keirin

Australia's double-act takes the spoils

Two weeks earlier at the Dunc Gray Velodrome during the Australian National Track Cycling championships, the Meares sisters - Kerrie and Anna - put on a sister act in the women's keirin final that left Rosealee Hubbard out of the medals, upset and disappointed.

Tonight, Hubbard was one happy trackie as she led from the front in the final of the keirin and held them off to take the gold ahead of Kerrie Meares and Germany's Christin Muche. The race had a similar pattern to their previous encounter: Meares wanted her teammate to take the wheel of the derny, while she took second wheel, keeping an eye on the rest of the field.

In this case, Hubbard took the place of the younger Meares sister as Kerrie once again controlled affairs from second wheel. Once again the plan was for the lead rider to take it our early and lead from the front, a plan that requires a dominant rider in second wheel.

Venezuela's Daniela Larreal felt the Meares force as she tried to take Hubbard's wheel in the first lap, but Meares would have none of it and forced her down and back into fourth wheel. The plan was Hubbard would be in first position after the derny and then Meares - no-one else should apply.

Hubbard also likes to lead from the front and has secured all her major wins from that position after the derny pulls of the track to unleash the three laps of mayhem. The South Australian is also no stranger to the physical side of keirin racing, but in this race she had to take it out early and very fast.

Last dash for cash

Behind her, the Ukraine's Iryna Yanovych made the jump from last wheel with three laps to go which put her into second place behind Hubbard. Hubbard put her head down for two laps of flat out sprinting, while Meares was forced back into fourth place as the Ukrainian overturned positions in the remainder of the field.

As the field came into the back straight of the bell lap, Meares made her move and came around the outside of Yanovych on the banking, dragging up Germany's Muche and they hit the line with less than a bike-length between them.

"I had half a can woop-arse left and I wanted to use it," Meares said of her last lap overtaking move on Yanovych. "I knew that she was going to jump and I just had to be patient and wait for a door to open. That door opened around the back and I went through it," she said.

"I thought she (Hubbard) would have the speed to make it to the finish," Meares said of her teammate. Hubbard said the encouragement of the vocal crowd lifted her for the final lap. "I could hear them yelling. It was amazing, I don't think I've ever heard it like that before."

Behind Hubbard, Meares presents an intimidating barrier. "I just have my goal to get into the final, then when I'm there I want to protect my position and sprint for the finish."

It has to be said that Meares' imposes herself in a way that is rare among female track cyclists, adopting tactics which are usually seen in men's racing but rarely in women's. "I'm doing it for the sport," she said, "to make it more exciting."
