August 8, 2005 “” Ben Barczewski (Breinigisville, Pa.) narrowly missed out on a medal in the men’s keirin on Monday as the 2005 UCI Junior Track World Championships continued in Vienna, Austria. Barczewski placed fourth behind Christos Volikakis (GRE), Rafal Poper (POL) and Rene Enders (GER) in the final round after strong showings in earlier qualifying heats to claim the best finish thus far for the U.S. National Team.
After finishing last in his first qualifying heat, Barczewski won the ensuing repechage to advance to the second round. With a second-place effort in round two, Barczewski moved forward to the six-man final where he placed fourth.
Also competing in the men’s keirin was Mike Schnabel (Emmaus, Pa.). Schnabel placed second in his qualifying heat and fourth in the subsequent repechage, eliminating him from further competition.
In the men’s kilometer time trial, Spencer Hartfeld (Santa Barbara, Calif.) posted a time of 1 minute, 7.510 seconds to place 13th as Maximilian Levy (GER) clocked the fastest time of the day, a 1:03.757, to earn the world title.
In the women’s 20km points race, Natalie Klemko (Bristol, Wis.) placed 17th with no points. Andrea Wolfer (SUI) captured the world title with 28 points as one of three girls to lap the field.
Daniel Holloway (Morgan Hill, Calif.) placed 24th in the men’s individual pursuit qualifying round with a time of 3:34.792. In the gold medal final, Andrew Tennant (GBR) clocked a time of 3:20.835 to beat Sam Bewley (NZL) who posted a time of 3:25.261.
Cindy Lakatosh (Trexlertown, Pa.) rode a time of 12.542 seconds in the women’s 200m sprint qualifying heat. With the 18th fastest time of the day, Lakatosh missed the top-16 cutoff necessary to qualify for the first round.
