2013 World Masters

Double Silver at World Masters

Sundrive's Susie Mitchell narrowly missed out on the perfect end to the perfect season with taking the silver medal in the 2k Pursuit. Once again she went into the final as underdog trailing her opponent by nearly two seconds, and once again she upped her performance in the final with a crisper start and was neck and neck for most of the race only to tie up slightly in the last lap with victory going to her Austrailan opponent by half a second - a reversal of the World Championship result from 2012.

Earlier in the week she had paired up with Kate Rudd (Black Rose) to have their first crack at Team Sprint indoors finishing with a respectable time and a 5th spot.

Terry Cromer placed 4th in both the Sprint and 500 TT in the 60-64 category and although not having a medal to show for it, he was quite pleased with the level of his performance most especially his tactical awareness and execution in the match sprints.

Susie capped off an excellent week by also taking Silver in the points race, and this was especially pleasing as it was her first points race on the boards and bodes well for another medal prospect in 2014.
