Published: 7 August 2014
Sophie Capewell continued her excellent form at the British Cycling Junior and Youth National Track Championships with a third gold medal on Wednesday.
Capewell, who has won the junior female keirin and under-16 sprint in Manchester, added the junior female sprint title to her collection.
The 15-year-old Lichfield City rider beat Bush Healthcare’s Ellie Coster in the final in straight heats with Lauren Bate-Lowe taking bronze.
Capewell earlier qualified fastest in 12.094 seconds ahead of Coster’s 12.244 seconds.
County Cycles’ Joe Holt reversed the result of junior male team pursuit to win kilo gold ahead of Velocity WD-40’s Matthew Gibson.
Gibson defeated Holt in the gold medal ride over 3000m on Monday but Holt set a winning time of 1.04.344 over 1000m.
Gibson’s effort of 1.06.567 was enough for silver ahead of I-Team Cyclists' Club’s Joe Truman, who competed at the YEC European Track Championships in Portugal last month.
Eleanor Dickinson triumphed in the under-16 female scratch race ahead of teammate Jessica Roberts. Poole Wheels Cycling Club’s Rebecca Raybould rounded off the top three.
Dickinson has shown her form by winning the second of three qualifying heats in the discipline.
In the under-16 male points race, Velocity WD-40’s Matthew Walls won three of the six sprints over 50 laps to claim gold ahead with 15 points. His teammate Reece Wood was second, three points behind with VC Londres’s Fred Wright.
The championships conclude on Friday 8 September.
