Canada Wins 4 Medals and Breaks Record at Track Cycling World Cup

Team Canada gave the home crowd much to cheer about at the Mattamy National Cycling Centre in Milton, Ontario where round three of the Tissot UCI Track Cycling World Cup was held from December 1-3.

Opening things off with a medal on day one was Jasmine Duehring who won silver in the women’s Points Race. Duehring, who studied at Terry Fox Secondary School in Port Coquitlam and who has won bronze medals at the 2012 and 2016 Olympic Games took a break from racing this year to finish her degree in mathematics but that didn’t appear to slow her down.

The Canadian women continued their medal-winning ways into Day 2 of the competition taking the gold in the Team Pursuit while Allison Beveridge of Calgary, Alberta took the silver in the women’s Omnium.

On the third and final day of racing, Jay Lamoureux from Victoria, BC and his fellow Team Pursuit squad set a new Canadian record of 3:58.359 to qualify for the gold medal race where they finished with a silver medal after recovering from a crash during the race.

This was the first time the Track Cycling World Cup has been held in Canada since 1998 in Victoria, BC.
