Maharaj, Campbell claim omnium events

 Varun Maharaj grabbed the Elite Men’s omnium title on the third day of the Trinidad and Tobago Cycling Federation (TTCF) National Track Championships on Sunday at Arima Velodrome, shrugging off the challenge of Jovian Gomez despite the men being neck and neck after three events.

Akil Campbell also made light of a battle with RigTech Sonics teammate Tyler Cole, winning the Junior version of the six-event omnium on the same day. Maharaj claimed two of the final three events to put some daylight between himself and Gomez, who were separated by one point after the first three on Saturday night. He secured the four-kilometre individual pursuit, but was beaten into second by Marc Codrington in the 15km scratch race.

But Maharaj was also the start of the kilometre time trial, leaving no doubt as to whom the winner would be. He finished with nine points, and Gomez (18) was second after placing second in the pursuit and ‘kilo’. Third was Gevan Samuel, who also bagged bronze in the pursuit and scratch races.

Campbell was expectedly the star of the Juniors, as he took the pursuit (3km), scratch race (10km) and ‘kilo’ events to distance himself Tyler Cole, who was close to the lead after the first half.
