Canada made history on Jan. 16 with the Women’s Team Sprint securing its best result ever – a fourth place in the event, which will improve its chances to qualify for the Rio 2016 Olympic Games. Kate O’Brien cracked the top 10 for the first time on the World Cup during the women’s sprint event, advancing to the 1/8 final repechage.

Sullivan ended up 13th in the Women’s Keirin after placing fourth in her First Round heat and then second in her Repechage which meant she did not advance to the Second Round.

Barrette placed 19th in the men’s Sprint Qualifications and faced off against China’s Chao Xu in the 1/16 Finals but was defeated and did not advance to the 1/8 finals.

On the final day, Canada’s Allison Beveridge battled through an injury sustained the day before during the Scratch race and completed the Omnium placing 9th ending up 6th in the overall standings. Beveridge had won this event at the previous world cup in New Zealand.

“I woke up not feeling too great in my shoulder,” said Beveridge who was involved in a crash on Saturday night during the Elimination race. “Basically the objective this weekend was to race the best I could, tactically as well as technically. I tried to make the most of it but stay safe out there. Standing starts were really bad and it was getting worse throughout the day. I’m just looking forward to getting home and recovering.”

Fellow Canuck, Remi Pelletier-Roy, moved up to 16th overall in the men’s Omnium following the three events on the final day. He was 20th in the Scratch Race, 15th in the Individual Pursuit and 21st in the Elimination Race to sit 19th at the half way mark. On the final day Pelletier-Roy was eighth in the Kilo (1,000m TT), 14th in the Flying Lap and in the final Points Race he was sixth to finish 16th overall.

The next international race for the Canadian track cycling team will be the 2016 UCI Track World Championships, the final Rio 2016 Olympic qualifying event. The event takes place in London, GBR.

Cycling Canada’s High Performance Director Jacques Landry is thrilled with the outcome of this World Cup in Hong Kong. “Another great weekend for our track program at the last world cup of the season. Thanks to our athlete pool, coaches, facility in Milton and our support staff, our performances are repeatable and in some cases improved. The weekend performances bode really well as our teams will travel back home to turn their focus on preparation for the penultimate targeted event of the year, the world championships in London GBR, in March.”
