Quinn – 1st after being oh so close so many times

Becky Quinn – one of the US’s preeminent sprinters – took the Gold in the women’s points race at this year’s Elite nationals. Becky has been on the podium every year since 2000 – but it was this year that she stepped on to the top step.

Becky had a strong South Bay Wheelman team to help her in her quest for the elusive National title. However, the race wasn’t decided until the final sprint.

In the 100 lap, 25 k race, riders can score points every 10th lap – sprinting for 5 points for 1st – or by lapping the field for 20 points.

Becky – aided by her South Bay Wheelman teammates – was able to score in practically each of the sprints. However, Heather Albert and Katharine Lundby lapped the field mid way through the race – which put both of them ahead of Quinn.

Comming into the final sprint Quinn was 4 points down on Albert – thus she needed the final sprint to have a chance of taking the elusive gold.

It was hers…
