28 Jul Castle Staves Off Revenge As Agostini Wins 10 Mile Championship
TREXLERTOWN, Pa. – Friday night was the final night of racing in T-Town for the New Zealand national team and Jordan Castle made the most of it. The young Kiwi earned three wins on the night, including the top place in the men’s Keirin Revenge final as he staved off anyone looking to dethrone his keirin bragging rights with Castle winning the Keirin Cup earlier this season.
Additionally, Emma Cumming of New Zealand won the women’s Keirin Revenge at the Valley Preferred Cycling Center on Friday night as the full slate of racing was completed with not a drop of rain, despite storms surrounding the Bicycle Racing Capital of the World.
The other feature event of the night was the U.S. 10 Mile Championships, which featured both the professional men and the stagiaires fields on the track. It was a battle between 19-year old Joel Yates of New Zealand and Mauro Agostini for the win as the two were up two-laps on the majority of the field. It was a photo finish at the line with Agostini coming away with the victory.
