UCI Track World Cup #2 Melbourne – Day 2 Report, Results

report by the CCA

November 20, 2009 (Melbourne, Australia) – UCI World Cup #2 track action continued at the Manchester velodrome for Day 2 of the competition. Travis Smith (Canada) finished 17th in the Men’s Keirin final and Jacob Schwingboth (Canada) was 13th in the Men’s Scratch race final.

CCA Day 2 Report – Travis Smith Contests the Keirin While Jacob Schwingboth Powers Throught the Scratch Race
Both Jacob Schwingboth and Travis Smith were in action today with Travis first up contesting the keirin. Travis drew a tough heat with stiff competition, including Shane Perkins (winner of the majority of sprint events at the Perth GP a week earlier where Travis finished 6th) and British rider Matthew Crampton. Travis was pressing very hard but could only manage a 4th best with two going through to the next round; however, Travis was up for a second chance to get in on the action in the repechage.

Travis geared down for the repechage with only three riders in the rep and one going through. Sam Webster from New Zealand and Barry Forde of Barbados were the other combatants. Smith drew number three and tried to take the bike but ended up in third to start the ride. With Forde laying off ever so slightly and weaving back and forth Travis seized the opportunity to dive under Forde as pace bike was now off the track. Forde then came down forcing Travis to back off. It was now down to two laps to go and Travis tried to go high and wide with Forde going high to protect but Travis got the jump and got onto Webster’s wheel but ran out of gas on the second run to try to go around the kiwi rider. This ended Travis’s  day, leaving him to prepare for the sprints which begin the next morning.

Jacob Schwingboth was up in the second heat for the men’s scratch race and the last event of the morning session. Jake was patient throughout the race and did not panic when six riders gained a lap on the field from three different break aways. It now came down to the remaining top four riders out of seven left to go through to the finals with a kilometer remaining. Jake pounced on the opportunity and attacked from up high with a lap and half to go and strung the field out with Jake just getting pipped at the line by three other riders, but it was enough for him to go through to the finals in the evening

In Jacob’s his first World Cup final, he lined up against the likes of Chris Newton of Great Britain to contest the 15 km scratch race. The race averaged over 50 kph and was won by New Zealand rider Tim Sculley. In the end 11 riders gained a lap on the field and Jacob finished 13th but was very active in the race.

Within the first 10 laps of the race an Italian rider lapped the field solo in 4 laps riding at 58 kph. Then a series of bursts from the group separated the men from the boys and three more riders got away to lap the field. Race favourite Newton was still on equal laps but launched a massive attack. It was at this point that Jacob was already up the road a bit chasing another small group when Newton stormed by with 4 others in tow but the speed was too much for Jacob to match and he went back to the group. By now, 6 riders had lapped the main peleton, but the Newton led five-some was losing steam as the end of the race closed in. Newton then attacked his group and gained the lap solo with 8 laps remaining in the race. The four riders with Newton just made the junction with 2 laps remaining. Jacob then got on Newton’s wheel, but his acceleration had been dulled by earlier efforts and Newton stalled as he moved up in the sprint.

Jacob managed about 6th or 7th in the bunch sprint for 13th overall, a fine effort for his first World Cup final. Some mistakes were made but some excellent riding also with lots to build on for future world cups. Tomorrow is the final day of competition and Travis Smith will be lining up for the match sprints.
