At this year's National Track Championship, Madison Genesis rider Andy Tennant took the gold medal in the 4000m Individual Pursuit final against Steven Burke in emphatic style.
Burke had a lightning start but soon started to falter. Tennant played the long game and slowly started to reel Burke in to catch him just 10.5 laps in.
After the race Tennant said, “It was a good race against Burkey in an exciting final" and “It’s not often I get to ride for myself in individual events, I’m a part of the team pursuit team and that’s more my thing and my focus tends to go into it because it’s an Olympic event. The Nationals gives you an opportunity to ride other events which you wouldn’t normally do so it was nice.”
Congratulations to Andy Tennant, the new Individual Pursuit National Champion!
