Cycling Southland's Eddie Dawkins and Tom Scully were in action this morning at Apeldoorn in the Netherlands on the final day of the 2011 World Track Championships.
After a heavy sprint schedule at these champs, Eddie backed up this morning to earn his third top ten finish in the Men's Kilo. Dawkins finished 10th in a time of 1'03.534 - just over two seconds outside a medal position. Stefan Nimke of Germany won the gold in 1'00.793.
Eddie roared home to record the fourth fastest final 250m (15.593) to climb up the rankings into the top 10 to finish a highly successful event.
Fellow club member Tom Scully teamed with Auckland's Aaron Gate to finish 13th in the Men's Madison. Australian duo Cam Meyer and Leigh Howard lived up to their favourites billing by winning gold.
Jo Kiesanowski ended the BikeNZ campaign by finishing 9th in the Women's Omnium. Starting the day in 7th spot, she placed 12th in the Individual Pursuit, 8th in the Scratch race and ended with 9th in the Time Trial on her second day of racing.
So for BikeNZ it equaled its medal haul from last year's champs with four - Jesse Sergent and Ali Shanks took silver in the Individual Pursuits, Shane Archbold did the same in the Men's Omnium and the Women's Team Pursuit grabbed bronze.
