Dutch Kirsten Wild dominates Omnium race (UK), with Letizia Paternoster third
Northwave achieved further wins at the Track European Championships in Glasgow (UK), updating its roll of honors to five titles and eight medals so far. Yesterday, Monday August 6th, the Northwave-equipped riders stole the scene in the Omnium Women Race: Netherland's Kirsten Wild won the gold medal with 156 points, whilst Italy's Letizia Paternoster took the bronze with 111. British Katie Archibald placed second (144).
At the Sir Chris Hoy Velodrome, Wild started to call the shots by topping the Scratch race with 40 points(Paternoster fourth, 34). The Dutch rider strengthened her lead in the Tempo Race, keeping it after the Eliminationrace, while Paternoster stepped up the temporary podium with only the Points Race missing.
Wild re-affirmed her rule in the Points Race with 44 points, finishing the Omnium with 156 overall. Archibald was second, whilst Paternoster managed to fend off Evgenia Augustinas' attack, holding the third position. Both Wild and Paternoster used Northwave Extreme RR, offering the maximum power transfer on the pedals thanks to the XFrame® technology.
Previously in Glasgow, Northwave had topped the podium with Ganna (in Men's Team Pursuit race), Wild (Women's Scratch), Archibald (Women's Team Pursuit) and Brennauer (Women's Individual Pursuit), also winning a silver medal with Paternoster (Women's Team Pursuit) and one bronze with Brennauer (idem).
