Rains in Trexlertown reshuffled the schedule at the national track championships, but competition resumed on Thursday night, with Jame Carney, Mike Beers and Tanya Lindenmuth taking home national titles.
For Carney, it was a night of double duty, as the points race semifinals and finals were both contested in the Thursday evening session.
After qualifying in the 60-lap semifinals, competitors had to turn right back around for the 120-lap final later in the evening. In the final, Carney (Prime Alliance) lapped the field twice to take the win.
Navigators’s Marty Nothstein wassecond, and Kenny Williams (Saturn of Bellvue) third.
In the women’s sprint, defending national champion Lindenmuth (Focus 2004) beat last year’s world junior sprint champion Sarah Uhl (Dansko-Independent Fabrication-Wheelworks) in two straight rides to take the title.
In the men’s kilometer, Beers (East Coast Velo), posted a time of 1:07.453 to take the win, his first individual national title. Adam Duvendeck (Focus 2004) took second.
