Colorado Springs, Colo. (July 27, 2012) — The fourth day of the 2012 USA Cycling Masters Track National Championships saw 17 national champions crowned, as well as several record-breaking performances.

Individual Pursuits

Three individual pursuit finals began competition, with Neva Day (Manhattan Beach, Calif./COG Cycling) rising to the occasion for her third Stars-and-Stripes jersey of this event, speeding to the win in the women’s 40-44 two-kilometer race over Shane Ellis (Orange, Calif./Team Hammer Nutrition). In third was Jane Evely (Carnation, Wash./Slalom Consulting Racing).

After earning a pair of silver medals this week, Lawrence Bosch (Fort Collins, Colo./Boulder Orthopedics) rode to victory in the men’s 65-69 two-kilometer individual pursuit, just four-tenths of a second ahead of Jack Kelso (Pleasanton, Calif./ Team Hammer Nutrition). Claiming bronze was Michael Williams (Metairie, La.).

The men’s 35-39 two-kilometer individual pursuit title was won by Joshua Frick (Bethesda, Md./Clean Currents p/b Beyer Kia/DC Velo Limited). Kevin Phillips (Redondo Beach, Calif./Ironfly) took the silver medal and Randy McLain (Boulder, Colo./Hammer Racing Team-TVG LTD.) earned bronze.

Time Trials

Rita Kacala (Racine, Wis./Nova Cycle Sports Foundation Inc dba ISCorp Cycling Team) continued to write her name in the record books, setting an unofficial world and American best in the women’s 55-59 500-meter time trial with a time of 39.439. Lenita Anthony (San Diego, Calif./Team RTS Revolution) trailed in second and Sandra North (Berthoud, Colo./Blue Sky Velo) placed third.

The hometown favorite Charlotte Miller (Colorado Springs, Colo./Pikes Peak Velo) took her fourth title of 2012 with her win over Jeanette Fitzgerald (Santa Ana, Calif./Veloce Santiago) in the women’s 60-64 500-meter race.

In another record-setting ride, Linda Miller (Valley Center, Calif./Eddie B Cycling) stopped the clock at 41.933 in her 65-69 500-meter time trial to unofficially set the world and American mark in both the 60+ and 65+ age categories. Runner-up Bonnie Woodbury’s (Escondido, Calif.) 42.893 was also an improvement on the world and American 65+ records, but was eclipsed by Miller’s time. Patricia Riddle (La Jolla, Calif./Racing Against Diabetes) took bronze in the contest.

Patricia Baker (Laguna Hills, Calif./Cal-Pacific Export Packers /Lightning Velo) successfully defended her women’s 70-74 500-meter time trial national title with the win over Julie Lockhart (Dunstable, Mass./Northeast Bicycle Club).

In a tight men’s 50-54 500-meter time trial, Donald Langley (Morgan Hill, Calif./Team Specialized Racing Masters) pulled out the win ahead of Jay Wolkoff (Altadena, Calif./Radsport Cycling Team) and Ted Kicey (Houston, Texas/Southern Elite).

Scratch Races

Emerging from a breakaway that formed with about five laps to go, David McIntosh (Colorado Springs, Colo./Ronin Racing) and Larry Stoegbauer (Evanston, Ill./WDT-Allvoi International Cycling Team) were riding one/two with half a lap to go in the men’s 40-44 10-kilometer scratch race. As the two leaders came around the final turn, Stoegbauer hit the acceleration to overtake McIntosh and take the win. Andy Brown (Solana Beach, Calif./RIDE Cyclery) followed in third.

With eight laps to go, Anne Donley (Boulder, Colo./Boulder Orthopedics) attacked the group in the women’s 35-39 five-kilometer scratch race. They would only see her back wheel for the rest of the race. Following Donley in second was Therese Johnson (Denver, Colo./ProDesign Cycling), with Ingrid Alongi (Boulder, Colo./Naked Women's Racing p/b TriBella) in third.

Points Races

Local rider Glen Winkel (Colorado Springs, Colo./Natural Grocers Cycling Team) opened up a big gap on the field early in the race and proceeded to take four out of five sprint laps to claim the top step on the podium in the men’s 55-59 10-kilometer points race. Gerald Greenleaf (Boulder, Colo./Boulder Orthopedics) attempted to chase down Winkel, but had to settle for second, two points ahead of Michael Birditt (Escondido, Calif./Spy-Swami's Cycling Team).

In the men’s 60-64 10-kilometer race, Larry Wolff (Sacramento, Calif./Team Hammer Nutrition) and Barry Messmer (Fort Collins, Colo./Boulder Orthopedics) struck out on their own with about 19 laps to go. They managed to lap the field with eight laps left, but ultimately it was Wolff who earned the sprint points to top Messmer 33 points to 30 and take the win. Steven Worley (Boulder, Colo./Boulder Orthopedics) was third.

A similar story played out in the women’s 50-54 10-kilometer points race, with two riders lapping the field and collecting the 20-point bonus. Taking home her fourth Stars-and-Stripes jersey in as many days was Annette Williams (Kenmore, Wash./Slalom Consulting Racing). Peg Labiuk (Orange, Conn./Sage Riders) followed her in second, and Mary Nunnelly (Houston, Texas/Bike Barn (Texas)) scored the bronze.

Sprints

In her flying 200-meter qualifying ride, Gea Johnson (Scottsdale, Ariz./Team Green Choice/Team RPM/Airpark Bikes) stopped the clock at 12.001 to set unofficial world and American records for the women’s 45+ age group. Using that momentum, she went on to win the women’s 45-49 sprint over CJ Boyenger (Orange, Calif./Team Hammer Nutrition). Tara Unverzagt (Torrance, Calif./Team Hammer Nutrition) won the bronze medal race.

Victor Copeland (Rancho Santa Fe, Calif./Eddie B Cycling) added another win to his palmarès, taking the men’s 70-74 sprint in two rides over James Martins (Houston, Texas/Team Spincycle). Earlier in the morning session, Martins unofficially broke the American 70+ record in the flying 200 meters with a time of 12.074. Leo Menestrina (San Jose, Calif./Webcor/Alto Velo Racing Club) won his bronze medal final.

Thomas O'Rourke (West Bloomfield, Mich./Cadieux Bicycle Club) continued his winning ways with the win in the men’s 75-79 sprint over  J Beck (Hanover Park, Ill./Midwest Masters Cycling Team).

The final race of the day saw Rob Barnes (Boulder, Colo./Real D-Amgen Masters Cycling) pull out the win in the third ride of the men’s 45-59 sprint after splitting the first two with runner-up Michael Paulin (Aurora, Colo./Hammer Racing Team- TVG LTD.). The bronze medal went to Joaquin Kiley (Detroit, Mich./Wolverine Sports Club) .
