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 – 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.
