Cycling Canada  – Apeldoorn, NL (March 16, 2019) – Tristen Chernove took his second medal of the UCI Para-cycling Track World Championships on Friday, in Apeldoorn, Netherlands.  The Cranbrook, BC, rider won the bronze medal in the men’s C2 1000 metre time, after winning the silver medal on Thursday in the Individual Pursuit.  Ross Wilson, winner of the bronze medal in the men’s C1 Individual Pursuit on Thursday, finished seventh in the C1 1000 metre time trial.

For the first time, the world championships include a 200 metre flying start time trial event.  While not a medal event, the 200m standings for each category count towards an overall Omnium standings, a test event for the 2024 Paralympic Games.  Both Wilson and Chernove finished second in their respective categories for the 200m time trial, while Marie-Claude Molnar was third in the C4 women’s competition.

Chernove now leads the C2 men’s Omnium standings after three of four events, while Wilson is second overall in C1 men.  Molnar is fourth in the women’s Omnium standings after two of four events.

“It was a challenging day for me,” admitted Chernove.  “I haven’t been feeling great, but I’m super happy with the incredible staff support to keep me in the competition today, and I’m glad I persevered.  It’s really great to be leading the Omnium and I hope to get the overall win, but it will come down to the Scratch race on Saturday.”
