July 24, 2016 (Aigle, Switzerland) – Here are some results from Day 5 at the 2016 Junior Track World Championships where Stefan Ritter claimed bronze in the Men’s Sprint and Maggie Coles-Lyster came from behind and a crash in the final Points Race to claim bronze in the Women’s Omnium. Team Canada’s total Junior Worlds medal count in Aigle matches the Senior squad’s Worlds tally from London in March, with four apiece as the juniors came home with gold, silver and two bronze medals.

We caught up with Team Leader and Men’s Track Endurance coach, Ian Melvin, for his take on the championships. “Today has epitomized our performances here in Aigle. Our kids have had to work hard for all of their rewards, and they showed a lot of fight and determination. I’m thrilled to see us come home with four medals but beyond that, we’ve set personal bests and national records, almost across the board. We couldn’t ask for anymore from these riders; I’m incredibly proud of them all.

“Hopefully this group has shown the rest of the world that we can compete with anybody out there; they’ve created a springboard for themselves and also for Canada’s junior program. Still we have to keep working hard through the winter to ensure that the gaps we still have are addressed,” he concluded.
