Tuesday, February 21, 2012
London — American Sarah Hammer rode her Felt TK1 to a gold medal in the omnium at the season's final World Cup Track event in London. Hammer, a four-time World Champion on the track, showed that she’s headed in the right direction toward her big goal for the season, the upcoming Summer Olympics, which will be held on the same track in London.

The omnium tests track racers’ overall abilities, combining results from six different events. Hammer won with consistent performances, finishing third in the flying lap, ninth in the points race, eighth in the elimination, third in the individual pursuit, second in the scratch race and fifth in the time trial. The omnium will be one of five track events contested by women at the upcoming Olympics.

Also representing Felt at the London World Cup was Canadian Zach Bell. The 29-year-old, also gunning for the 2012 Olympics, scored a bronze medal riding Felt in the men’s omnium.
