Gicquel, Baker, and Kloss all set records. Williams and Wagner add third titles of the week. Nolan, Carlson, and Petit successfully defend their titles.

Carson, Calif. – Three World Records were set on the third day of racing at the 2019 USA Cycling Masters Track National Championships at the VELO Sports Center in Carson, Calif. A total of 20 National Champions were crowned on the day, and many have already collected multiple titles at this year’s event, which continues through Sunday, Aug. 31, 2019.

During the morning’s qualifying rounds, Jim Kloss (Huntington Beach, Calif.) set a new World Record in the Men’s 80-84 200m Sprint qualifications with a time of 13.111, marking his second World Record of the week. Earlier this week, he won gold in the Men’s 75-79 Time Trial and currently holds the World Record in the age group. Kloss ended Day 3 of racing with another win – he claimed gold in the Men’s 80-84 Sprint.

“It’s a good meet, and I’m just having fun out there,” Kloss said after his races. “I’m training throughout the whole year with my group, Big Picture Cycling, and coaches, Giddeon Massie and Andy Lakatosh, so it’s second nature when you get to the track. It’s just nice to have people coming from all over the country and to get to see them race. It’s great to watch.”

Men’s Time Trial races also saw Chris Waggoner (North Plains, Ore.; Therapeutic Associates) win gold in the Men’s 35-39 division (1:07.739), and Andrew Weathers (Houston; Momentum Coaching Group p/b Atomic) claim gold in the Men’s 50-54 Time Trial (34.921).

The morning’s final rounds also saw two new World Records in Women’s 500-meter Time Trial racing. Barbara Gicquel (Salinas, Calif.) defended her title in the 75-79 group (44.062), topping her time set on the same track a year ago to clock a new World Record. Patricia Baker (Laguna Hills, Calif.; Sisterhood of Cycling) won for 80-84 (59.125) to establish a World Record.

Annette Williams (Kenmore, Wash.; Kenmore Velo) took home gold in the Women’s 55-59 Time Trial (39.530) – her third Stars and Stripes jersey this week. The Women’s 60-64 Time Trial was won by Lorraine Jarvis (Windsor, Calif.; Mellow Motors) at 42.544, and Lan Tran (San Diego; SDBC Powered by Spineregy p/b UC Cyclery) took gold in the Women’s 65-69 Time Trial (42.488).

Two Pursuit races were also held Thursday morning. Sarah Munoz (Redondo Beach, Calif.) claimed gold in the Women’s Individual Pursuit, 40-44 (2:40.304), and Steven Worley (Boulder, Colo.; Boulder Center for Orthopedics) came away with the Stars and Stripes jersey in the Men’s 65-69 Pursuit final (2:31.782), his second win of the week.

The Day 3 evening session started with Jeromy Cottell (Redwood City, Calif.; Tochstone Racing) winning the Men’s 40-44 Scratch Race, Jennifer Wagner (Houston; Shama Cycles) claiming her third gold of the championships with a win in the Women’s 35-39 Scratch Race, and Tracy Jones-Martin (Houston; Momentum Coaching Group p/b Atomic) winning the 40-44 Scratch.

In the evening’s Sprint races, Stephen McLaughry (Portland, Ore.) captured gold in the Men’s 45-49 Sprint; Mark Rodamaker (Los Altos, Calif.; Performance Cycle Coaching) took home the Stars and Stripes jersey in the Men’s 70-74 Sprint; and the 75-79 age group winner was Earl Henry (Pinellas Park, Fla.).

Two riders also captured gold in evening Points Races and both defended their titles in the respective events set at the 2018 National Championships. Chris Carlson (McKinney, Texas; Matrix/RBM) defended his title in the Men’s 55-59 Points Race, his second gold medal of the week, and Lawrence Nolan (Fremont, Calif.; Cal-Nat’s Racing) won the Men’s 60-64 Points Race to retain the jersey.

In the women’s evening races, Camie Kornely (Fort Lee, N.J.; Blue Ribbon) collected her second gold medal of the week with her win in the Women’s 45-49 Sprints, and Kimberly Pettit (Tulsa, Okla.; CWA Racing p/b Trek) battled to win gold in the Women’s 50-54 Points Race and retain her title.

“I did PRs in the Time Trial and 200 this year, so it’s exciting to be going faster,” said Kornely, who works as a physical education teacher. She is currently training with a goal of returning to the Master’s World Championships. “It definitely takes discipline and commitment. I have about an hour window between when I finish work and pick up my kid from school, so I maximize that hour.”
