Kirsten Wild wins European Track Points Race Championships

„I am really happy with this win and I didn’t expect it,“ said new European Champion Kirsten. „I never have problems with the switch from the road to the track, but to win such a big race is still difficult. I knew I was in good shape, but you never know what to expect as a lot can happen in the points race. In the beginning I kept calm to save some energy as normally as a group always takes a lap, but this didn’t happen so I needed to change tactics and sprinted full out in the last two sprints, together with the other points this was enough to win. „It was very special to be on the podium and win this jersey. I have never been european champion so that is really nice. Tomorrow is the start of the omnium, this really gives a boost and I am looking forward to it.“
Kirsten, now European Champion, entered the race as one of the favourites and finished the job perfectly taking a well deserved win.
She now heads into the Omnium which will be decided on Sunday night.
