Cambridge Bicycle rider Nick Mashburn set the winning time in the Category A 3000 meter Individual Pursuit.
The Cambridge Bicycle Summer Omnium Series at the New England Velodrome has seen some good racing so far this summer. Last Tuesday and Wednesday saw the second in a series of three events, and Pursuit Races were the feature omnium event. Racers competed for Omnium points in both the 3000 meter Individual Pursuit and the Australian Pursuit.
Gary Bavolar was only .14 seconds off the winning time.
With Omnium points up for grabs, both nights saw some fierce competition. Tuesday night had both Juniors and Womens fields, and many new riders showed up as well. If you’ve ever considered giving track racing a try, the track has a very accommodating atmosphere for new riders. Check the website for information of rideshares up to the track.
