RusVelo on Track!
RusVelo riders finish a few pedal strokes off the podium in two events of the track World’s.
On the first day of the UCI track World championships RusVelo riders took part in two medal events. In the morning, the Russian quartet set third fastest time in the team pursuit qualifying. In the evening Artur Ershov, Alexander Serov and their teammates met serious opponents in the shape of the New Zealand team. The Russian rode faster than in the heats, but the New Zealanders found still more petrol left in the tank and reversed the morning order between the two rivals. The story almost repeated itself in the team sprint where Denis Dmitriev and his compatriots missed 0.025 seconds separating them from the bronze. The duel for the medal brought the podium place to the French trio, the multiple medal winners at the World’s and the Olympics.
