APELDOORN, Netherlands – Canada’s Tara Whitten captured gold in the women’s omnium at the world track cycling championships for the second consecutive year Sunday, despite not winning any of the six races that make up the event.
The Edmonton cyclist was second in the flying lap, individual pursuit and scratch race and sealed her victory with a fifth place in the closing 500-metre time trial at the Omnisport velodrome.
