Jan Leads National Series

Jan Birkmyre gets on the podium again to hold onto lead in National Omnium Series at midway point …

The latest round of the national series was held at Welwyn Garden City in glorious sunshine and Jan, who has won the first two rounds of this series, showed great consistency across the first three events.  However, the pursuit did not go to plan and she slipped two points behind the leaders going into the final event, the points race, and was unable to improve on this placing but still retains the lead in the overall series standings.  Jan said “I suffered horribly in the heat and got the pacing all wrong in the pursuit, it put me on the back foot going into the points race and I never regained the lead.  It is frustrating but that is the nature of a series, it rewards the most consistent rider across the season and anyone can have a bad day”.
