The USA Cycling contingent earned its first medal of the event as Matt Baranoski (Perkasie, Pa./SUB 49) earned a bronze medal in just the second kilometer race of his career by completing the ride in 1:04.660. Baranoski earned a bronze medal in the 2010 Junior Track World Championships in the keirin. Kaleb Koch (Glenview, Ill./Cycle Sports Foundation Inc.-ISCorp Cycling Team) also contested the race and finished 24th after registering a personal-best 1:06.921.
Another highlight of the second day was the American team of Addyson Albershadt (Matthews, N.C./FLYING PIGS), Kate Wilson (Los Angeles, Calif./FLYING PIGS) and Jacqueline Denny (Liberty, Mo./FLYING PIGS). The three women, not to be outdone by the men’s team pursuit team’s unofficially record-setting performance on Wednesday, registered their own unofficial American national record by posting a 3:52.5 in the junior women’s team pursuit to qualify sixth.
In the women’s points race, Kate Wilson (Los Angeles, Calif./FLYING PIGS) finished ninth in the points race, collecting one point.
Jennifer Valente (San Diego, Calif./Adams Avenue Bicycles-GS) continued to ride well. Valente qualified 13th in the women’s flying 200 meter before winning her 1/16th ride before falling to the fastest qualifier Stephanie McKenzie (NZL) in her 1/8th contest. Valente dropped the reperchage and did not continue. Valente is scheduled to contest the scratch race on Friday.
Chloe Chepigin (Chappaqua, N.Y./Young Medalists-Team Rothrock) qualified 20th in the 200-meter race before falling to Adele Sylvester (AUS) in her 1/16th ride.
After the flying lap (23rd), points race (22nd) and elimination race (21st), Mathew Lipscomb (Decatur, Ga./Greenville Spinners Bicycle Club-Hincapie Development team) currently sits in 25th in the men’s omnium. The three-kilometer individual pursuit, 10-kilometer scratch race and the one-kilometer time trial are slated for Friday.
