This Saturday the fourth date of the UCI Track Champions League was held in France, with the participation of the best runners in the world, including the Colombian Martha Bayona, who finished the day in second place in the general classification of the speed modality, while his teammates Kevin Quintero and Santiago Ramírez remained in the top 5.
In the national velodrome of St-Quentin-En-Yvelines (France), the third valid of the track Champions League was held, an event endorsed and organized by the UCI, which continues to bet on developing events that are increasingly spectacular for spectators and television.
Bayona, who arrived in France as the leader of the standings, had a good performance in the sprint events: she won both the opening round and the semifinal, advancing to the final, where she finished second, behind the French Mathilde Gross. Meanwhile, in the keirin, the Colombian finished third in the first round, thus leaving her out of the final phases.
For their part, Quintero and Ramírez, who started the valid in the top 5 of the general table, began their participation in the sprint; Kevin Quintero finished first in his opening heat and third in the semifinal, while Ramírez was second in the first round, thus leaving the two Colombians out of the final.
Finally, in the keirin, Ramírez finished third in his heat and Quintero fifth, so they could not play the grand final.
At the end of the third valid round, Martha Bayona dropped to second place in the table, with 74 points, behind Mathilde Gros (France), who has 83 points.
Meanwhile, in the men’s table, Ramírez and Quintero have 52 points, occupying fourth and fifth place respectively, while the Dutchman Harrie Lavreysen is the leader with 111 points.
