An exciting points race, ultimately defined by one unit (49-48), allowed Argentine Fabricio Crozzolo to become two-time champion of the Junior Pan American Track Championship, which is held at the Asunción, Paraguay, velodrome, and at the same time time will avoid another sweep at the top of the podium for Colombia, which continues to dominate the competition with 14 medals (9-3-2).

The attractive race that has eight sprints turned into a close fight between Crozzolo and his teammate, Santiago Gruñeiro to see who obtained the most points after the second gap of a lap to the peloton on a couple of occasions. The closed difference only found a decision when Crozzolo prevailed in the final sprint. In this way he filed his second crown in this fight, since the day before he had been the fastest in the kilometer against the clock. The bronze corresponded to the Colombian Jorge Marín, with 22 cards.

Another one who continues to be enthusiastic and loaded with prizes is the Colombian Juliana Londoño, who reached three crowns in this Championship, establishing herself as the most complete cyclist, since she dominated the omnium test with first place in the four races: scratch, tempo, elimination race and race for points. All this allowed her to compile 168 points, ahead of the American Reagen Pattishall (128) and the Chilean Javiera Mansilla (118).

Always expected, the individual speed was a duel between Colombians, won by Stefany Cuadrado over Nathalia Martínez, whom she liquidated in two sprints. For her part, the bronze corresponded to the American Divya Verma, who beat the Colombian Liz Sánchez.

Finally, as if the harvest were enough for us, the Colombian Erick Parra triumphed in the elimination race, with silver resistance for Lenin Pareja from Colombia and bronze for the Chilean Juan González.

By countries, Argentina’s performance this Friday allowed it to displace Chile from the subtitle by nations and now the Albicelestes add up (2-4-3) and the Chileans fell to the third step with 1-6-2. Only four nations have been able to caress a title and six nations have been able to get on the podium.
