RACHEL MAKES UCI TRACK DEBUT
Abergavenny’s Rachel James made her UCI Track World Cup debut with Team USN in Los Angeles. She finished fifth in her keirin first round heat, with Germany’s Kristina Vogel taking the win. That result pushed her into the repechages, where she kept her chances in the competition alive by finishing second behind Colombia’s Martha Bayona Pineda.
In the second round, Rachel finished fourth as Vogel once again picked up a win, on her way to gold in the keirin final, with Rachel taking 10th place in the minor final.
