Frederick Daigle, The Canadian Press

Milton, Ont. – Alberta’s Naguir Barraclo achieved the Canadian performance of the day at the Nations Cup in Milton on Saturday, finishing fifth in the omnium.

After taking the scratch, Edmonton’s Barraclaw was ninth in tempo and 10th in the elimination race. The 19-year-old started the race for fifth place with just eight points from the podium with 86 points.

While Barraclo was only able to add two points to her total, she was able to defend her fifth place. She was defeated only by Italian Alyssa Balsamo (117), American Jennifer Valente (110), Australian Alexandra Manley (104) and Japanese Yumi Kajihara (100).

“This is the second time I’ve competed in an omnium at this level and the first time I’ve crashed, so it’s a huge improvement,” Barraclo told reporters on the site with a smile.

“The scratch turned out to be a pleasant surprise; It’s not discipline that usually smiles at me like this. I was a little disappointed in my other three races, but at least I was consistent.

“In the points race, I really wanted to climb the standings, but it wasn’t going the way I wanted. Then, when the leading group with almost twenty laps to go, tried to take a lap from us , so I wanted to give the peloton some rhythm so as not to lose ground.

In Keirin, Ryan Dodick participated in the ranking wave. Alberton kicked off with just two laps to go, but was unable to finish in the lead, finishing third in his heat and ninth overall.

“I am very pleased with this performance,” Dodick said. (…) Technically, last year in Cali, I finished fifth, but with the high field here, I consider it my best individual performance.

Britain’s Jack Carlin crossed the wire first, but was relegated after failing to maintain his running line in the final 200 metres. Colombia’s Kevin Santiago Quintero Chavarro won ahead of Australian Matthew Richardson and German Stefan Bauticher.

Ontarian James Haddock was barred in the draft.

Canada’s Sarah Orban and Jackie Boyle missed out on qualifying by less than half a second in the 500m time trial. Orban and Boyle finished the season in 14th and 15th place respectively. Last to start, Australian Christina Klonen won the competition in 32.987 seconds, ahead of German Pauline Sophie Grabisch and Italian Mirian Weiss.

In Madison, Canadians have never really been in the game. Dylan Bibic and Michael Foley scored a good five points in the second half of the race by finishing in the top four in two consecutive sprints, but they conceded a lap to the peloton, which resulted in a 20-point penalty. He finished 14th.

European champions Yoeri Havik and Jan Willem van Schipp of the Netherlands beat Britain’s representatives Rhys Briton and Ethan Hayter on 74 points to 66. Germans Theo Reinhardt and Tim Torn Teutenberg completed the podium with 47 points.

For the final day of competition on Sunday, Olympic medalists Kelsey Mitchell and Laurian Genest will be back for Keirin. Michelle will look to add a third medal to her weekend crop, while discipline bronze medalist Genest in Tokyo will be looking to add a second.
