Laura Trott wins Great Britain National Scratch Race Title

Wiggle Honda Pro Cycling’s Laura Trott won her second Gold Medal of the Great Britain National Track Championships at the National Cycling Centre, Manchester, as she sprinted to victory at the end of the 15km Scratch Race. The double Olympic champion, who was part of the successful Team Pursuit defence on Thursday crossed the line well clear of Team USN’s Emily Kay, with Wiggle Honda Pro Cycling teammate Dani King taking the Bronze Medal for third place.

“I feel amazing,” Trott told British Cycling. “I’m really, really happy. I was disappointed with yesterday’s result [when she took Silver in the Individual Pursuit] after training hasn’t been going too well for last couple of weeks to be honest.

“I felt really good, we took a lap and I felt like we were cruising round,” Trott explained. “I was just really relaxed and it came into the sprint and it panned out just how I wanted.

“I waited and I was in control and I didn’t want anybody to get in the way of how I sprint. I took it on with a lap to go and it worked!”

Trott, King and Wiggle Honda Pro Cycling’s Elinor Barker were part of a group of just six riders that managed to take two laps on the field in the course of the 60 lap event. With the trio were Kay, as well as Pearl Izumi teammates Katie Archibald and Dame Sarah Storey.

Barker took fifth place, while Wiggle Honda Pro Cycling’s Amy Roberts who had also lapped the field took seventh place after her sprint had seen her the fifth rider to cross the line.
