Day 2: Women's Pursuit | Open Points | Open Kilometre TT | Paracycling 200m FS TT

Day two saw three new Paracycling world records and national titles for Peter Kennaugh in the Points, Joanna Rowsell in the Pursuit, Matt Rotherham adding the senior Kilo title to his junior crown and Jon Allan Butterworth winning his second title in the Paracycling 200m TT.

Evening Session

Prior to the scheduled events the North West Regional Youth Team Pursuit squad set a new record of 3:21.690 for the 3000m pursuit which warmed up the crowd nicely ahead of the main course.

Men's 40km Points Final

Peter Kennaugh is national points race champion, in a dominant and controlled display, fending off a multitude of attacks from a trio of 100%ME riders. Riding without a teammate, Kennaugh had to do it all himself and the 100%ME boys Mark Christian, Jon Mould and Simon Yates, joined by Owain Doull and others, launched tag-team attacks in an attempt to wear down the Sky rider, the standout favourite from the earlier heats.

Kennaugh laid down the foundations of his win early on taking the first sprint then continued to score consistently throughout, hardly ever out of the points. The pivotal moment came when Christian, Dibben, Duggleby, Kennaugh, Moses, Mould, Rutherford and Simon Yates all gained a lap. The selection was made early on after which a number of riders tried to get back on terms with the leading eight.

There followed a flurry of attacks from the 100%ME boys, all desperate to eat into Kennaugh's lead. Adam Yates and Erick Rowsell gained a lap, meaning that 10 riders were now a lap up. Kennaugh continued to pick up points but a further sift was needed. Right on cue Kennaugh attacked with the three %100ME riders and quickly took a further lap. Suddenly it was a four horse race. Kennaugh didn't look back, going on to steadily consolidate his lead.

From here on it was essentially if not mathematically a race for silver and bronze. With three sprints left it was Mould in silver medal position, a place he strengthened by bagging the next five points. This moved Mould to within striking distance of Kennaugh and the Sky rider was taking no chances and attacked, winning the sprint and assuring gold. Dibben won the penultimate sprint with Mould claiming a further point and looking safe in silver. Come the final sprint and Kennaugh underlined his point, winning the final gallop and with it the national title.

Ben Elliott was next to challenge, opening his account with a 19.6 first lap, eventually recording a 1:06.316. Next up was Rotherham who blew the competition apart with a 1:03.671. Steven Burke who was tilting at his second title in two days, narrowly failed to topple Junior National Kilo champ Rotherham, posting a 1:03.941. Starting last as current champion Bruce Croall had a lot do, winning in 2010 with a 1:04. After starting strongly Croall faded in the final lap to post a 1:05.382, good enough for 4th.

Women's Individual Pursuit

Joanna Rowsell is the new national individual pursuit champion, beating Laura Trott in the gold medal final. Wendy Houvenaghel took bronze, while Sarah Storey rode into fourth place, breaking the C5 Paracycling world record in the process.

Rowsell opened with a storming first kilometre, inside Rebecca Romero's British record time. At 2km Rowsell had slipped outside a record time but was three seconds ahead of Trott on the track. At the bell the gap had come down slightly, but the die was cast and Rowsell had the title in the bag.

In the Bronze final Sarah Storey had the advantage in the early stages but by the 1km stage Houvenaghel was ahead. At the 2km stage Houvenaghel was over a second ahead, an advantage that she would keep until the end. However, Storey had had done enough to break the world record for the C5 category, the fourth Paracycling record to topple during the championships. Dani King followed up her qualifying form, winning the 5th to 8th contest.
