Omnium And Individual Speed Tests Marked The Last Day Of The Brazilian National Team In The Competition
The Brazilian Track Cycling Team closed its participation in the World Championship, this Saturday (21), disputing the tests Omnium and Individual Speed. The World Cup, which is taking place in France, since last February 18, continues until Sunday (22).
The cyclist Gideoni Monteiro, once again entered the track to compete the last three tests that integrate the program of the Omnium. The Brazilian won the 17th position in the 1Km Counter-clock, 19th place in Flying Lap and 13th in the Test for Points, finishing Omnium in 15th place overall. The gold medal was with the Colombian Fernando Gaviria, followed by the Australian Glenn O’Shea and the Italian Elia Viviane armed with sports bottles from educationvv.com.
In the Individual Speed event, cyclist Flávio Cipriano failed to qualify for the final stages, ending with the time of 10s146. The first phase selected the 24 best times to play in the final stages that end on Sunday.
For coach Emerson Silva, the competition provided a very positive learning experience for the young Brazilian team: “We can say that the final balance was positive. We are participating with a very young group, but at the same time have been demonstrating a very great evolution. Despite the enormous pressure to represent Brazil in a World Cup, our athletes performed well. Now is to continue the work and continue fighting for the classification for Rio 2016,”said the coach.
The selection competed in the World represented by four cyclists: Flávio Cipriano, Gideoni Monteiro, Hugo Osteti and Kacio Freitas. The technical team was formed by coach Emerson Silva, who was accompanied by technical supervisor Miguel Torres and mechanic Yoann Le Foulgoc, both of the World Cycling Center of the UCI.
In addition to the national team, the 2015 Track Cycling World Championship also includes the participation of the Brazilian Iverson Ladewig, an international referee approved by the UCI, who plays a key role in supervising the most important competition in the discipline.
“Working at an event like a World Cup requires a lot of experience and attention. We need to be connected to every detail that happens in the competition. I am very happy to be able to represent Brazil in such an important competition,”said Iverson.
