“My aerobic capacity was really strong, but my sprint was lacking a little bit. . . I think coming off the London Olympic test event in February, I didn’t recover enough and get that speed back. It’s not too hard to go back and get that for the Olympics.”

The two-time world champion from Edmonton finished with 39 points over the six-discipline event, three points shy of a bronze medal.

“For sure, fourth is disappointing,” Whitten said. “There were definitely some highs and lows today. I did a (personal best) in my individual pursuit.

“I’ll have to go back, see if there are any changes I can make and learn from this in preparation for London.”

Calgary’s Monique Sullivan was 13th in the women’s keirin.
