Narrow Victory for Hammer in Omnium


Narrow Victory for Hammer in Omnium

19th February 2012: U.S. cyclist Sarah Hammer (Temecula, Calif./OUCH Pro Cycling) claimed the gold medal in the womenís omnium on the final day of racing at the UCI Track World Cup final in London on Sunday.

Hammer was ranked fourth going into day two of omnium racing after Saturday saw her garner third-place in the flying lap, 9th in the points race, and 8th in the elimination race. On Sunday, the four-time world champ posted a third-place result in the individual pursuit, second in the scratch race, and a fifth-place finish in the 500-meter time trial to move her up to the number one spot.

Joining Sarah on the omnium podium was Annette Edmondson (AUS) with the silver medal and Laura Trott (GBR) with the bronze.

With her win on Sunday, Hammer is ranked second overall in the final omnium World Cup standings.

One of the events that perhaps hadn't been on the medal radar for Australia before this week is the women's omnium but Annette Edmondson, 20, the elder sister of pursuit rider Alex, has changed that with her silver medal performance in a world class field in what was her first omnium at international level.

"Three or four months ago we weren't sure what we could do with the women's omnium but Nettie has come on so quickly it's put her right in the mix and with young talent you can see big turnarounds in six months," said Tabotta. "I think the youth, in not just our team but across a few teams, could bring some surprises at the Olympics."

Edmondson backed up for the six race omnium after riding in the women's pursuit team that claimed the bronze medal on Friday in a world record time that was later broken by Great Britain in the gold medal race.

Edmondson firstly had to earn a place in the final through yesterday's qualifying points race after which she kicked off her omnium campaign with the fourth fastest time in the flying lap. In the points race she placed eighth and was fourth in the elimination race to put her in the lead going into todauy's second and final day of omnium competition. Fifth in the pursuit moved her back to second overall and she was stil in second after finishing sixth in the scratch race. That put her in medal contention with only the 500m time trial to race.

"Four days of racing and seven races the last two days is a big ask but I felt most of the others were in the same boat so it was just keep your head and understand they're feeling it too," said Edmondson.

In the end her 500 metre time was good enough to put her at the top of the table on 20 points and equal with America's Sara Hammer. But when officials tallied the times posted in the flying lap, pursuit and time trial events, Hammer came out two seconds ahead of Edmondson.

"My 3.41 in the pursuit I wasn't that happy with and when it came down to the count back that's where I suffered," she said. "It's the next thing I'll work towards for the next shot I get at it but it was definitely a great opportunity to be able to ride against these girls and for it to be my first one and for me to show I can keep my head and mix it with the big names."
