Doogan Finishes Seventh in Omnium at European Championships


On the penultimate day of the UEC Track Juniors and U23 European Championships in Montichiari, Italy Ciara Doogan finished the Women’s Junior Omnium in 7th place, with the final position being decided in the last race of the six event competition, the Points Race. Nicole Gorry finished 9th in the Women’s Junior Keirin, these championships served as top race experience for the first year junior from Mullingar at her first major event. In the Women’s U23 Omnium Josie Knight is sitting in 13th place at the halfway mark. Knight won silver at the Dublin Track Cycling International two weeks ago and was 9th in the Individual Pursuit earlier this week. The UEC Track Juniors and U23 European Championships take place in Montichiari Velodrome in the Brescia region of Italy, and run from the 12-17 July.


Doogan had been lying in sixth place going into the final race of the Omnium, but was overtaken by Amber Van der Hulst (NED) and Wiktoria Pikulik (POL) who took a lap in the 20km race gaining 20 extra points each. In a dramatic twist in the race the Omnium leader Mariia Novolodskaia (RUS) was disqualified for being relegated three times in the Points Race. The Omnium was won by Elisa Basamo (ITA) ahead of Olivija Baleisyte (LTU) with Jessica Roberts (GB) in third place.


Tomorrow will see Knight in action in day two of the Women’s U23 Omnium, while Autumn Collins competes in the Women’s U23 Keirin. Ireland will also field a team in the Men’s U23 Madison, with Silver Medallist in the Points Race Mark Downey teaming up with Fintan Ryan in the exciting endurance event. This weekend eleven Irish riders compete in twenty four events in one of the major events in junior and U23 track cycling. The UEC Track Juniors and U23 European Championships take place in Montichiari Velodrome in the Brescia region of Italy, and run from the 12-17 July.
