Masters Track Nationals Continues with Day Three of Competition

The 40 – 44 and 45 – 49 women raced together in the 10-kilometer points race. The 45 – 49 year-olds flexed their muscles in this combined race, taking the top three overall spots by a commanding margin. Annette Hanson (Kenmore, Wash./Avanti-TiCycles) ran away from the more than 15-rider field, staying at or off the front of the group nearly the entire race to win the gold by more than 10 points over the closest competitor. A pair of 45 – 49 year-olds, Lias Giuffre (Englewood, Ohio/Team IPro) and Patty Powers (Kintnersville, Pa./Unattached), were next in line taking second and third overall to win the silver and bronze in the older of the two competing age divisions. Accruing the most points in the 40 – 44 age division, Kathryn Wilder (Doylestown, Pa./Bicycle John’s) earned herself a national championship. Renee Schroeder (Grosse Point, Mich./Wolverine Sports) and Luanne Murray (Fogelsville, Pa./Kreitler Racing) were right on the heels of Wilder to take second and third amongst the 40 – 44 year-olds.

The women’s sprints held the same trend as all of the day’s final round sprints were decided in two straight, dissolving the need for the third match-up in the best of three format. Heather Vanvalkenburg (Vancouver, Wash./Team Rubicon) held off Kara Vidaca (Norco, Calif./Bicycle John’s) to win the women’s 30 – 34 gold as these two continued their heated competition for the best all-around rider in the women’s baby masters division. Samantha Van Gerbig (Cambridge, Mass./Wachovia-IBC) took two straight from Sarah Alholm (Asheville, N.C./Prestige-Subaru) to earn the bronze. It took a pair of photo finishes to determine the final round winners in the 35 – 39 age group. Brooke Wilson (Morris Plains, N.J./Team Somerset-Van De) overtook Kimberely Nuffer (Denver, Colo./Hammer Racing) to take home the stars-and-stripes jersey in the gold medal match-up while Laura Summers (Southington, Conn./Horst-Benidorm-PRC) held off Deborah Kidd (Sante Fe, N.M./Hammer Racing) by only centimeters to take third.
