Champions League in track cycling. The second round of the competition took place in Berlin

Australian Matthew Richardson won again over Dutchman Harrie Lavreysen in the sprint final of the second Champions League track cycling event of the season in Berlin. Mateusz Rudyk was eliminated in the first round, and Urszula Łoś – in the semi-finals.

Richardson defeated Lavreysen for the second time in a row. A week ago he overtook him in Palma de Mallorca, revenge for the defeat in the final of this year’s world championship in Saint-Quentin-en-Yvelines near Paris.

Rudyk failed to pass the 1st round, giving way to Colombian Kevin Quintero. In keirin he fared better – he advanced to the finals, where he took fifth place. Lavreysen won.

Łoś competed in the same competitions. In the first round of the sprint, in the absence of Germany’s Lea Friedrich, she easily beat Ireland’s Orla Walsh, and in the semi-finals she also performed well, making a fight with the world champion of France Mathilde Gros and leaving behind Olympic gold medalist Canadian Kelsey Mitchell. In the final, Gros overtook the Dutch Laurine van Riessen.

Mitchell won the keirin, while Łoś was eliminated in the 1st round.

In the middle distance, Filip Prokopyszyn did not finish the scratch race due to a fall. In the qualifying round he took the penultimate, 17th place. The winners were, respectively, British Oliver Wood and Canadian Dylan Bibic. Among the women, both races were won by British Katie Archibald.

Lavreysen and Colombian Martha Bayona lead the overall score after two races in the sprint, while the leaders in the middle distance are Canadian Mathias Guillemette and American Jennifer Valente. Rudyk takes sixth place, Łoś – 10th, and Prokopyszyn – 16th.
