Lotte Kubicki (4th) and Fabio van den Bosset (6th) fall next to the medals at Omnium | European Championships

Lotte Kubicki and Fabio van den Bosch were unable to give our country a new medal(s) at the Track European Championships in Munich. Kopecky finished off the podium at omnium, Van Den Bossche started with third place in the final points race, but finished sixth.

There is no third European title for Kopecky

After her European titles in elimination and points race, Lotte Kopecky was able to start Omnium with a backpack full of confidence. In “Everything on the track”, Kopecky was again a candidate for the medal, but already in the first issue of the day the fatigue was evident in our compatriot.

She ranked eighth in zero below expectations, in a tempo race she finished in the same spot. Our compatriot needed an excellent elimination race and as a brand new European champion in this segment, she finished second. It was still possible to get a medal.

In the unpredictable points race, the part where Kopecky is the world and European champion, our compatriot ran well, but the crash of some competitors put an end to her plans.

A major scratch on the track caused a long delay. After the repairs were completed – and the competition was able to explode – the race could start again. In the remaining 36 laps, Kopecky tried to force something, but to no avail. It came in fourth place.

Kubiki: ‘It can’t always be a prize’

“It can’t be a prize every day,” Kubiki replied with a smile. “It wasn’t in my best interest for the points race to be stopped, because I’m usually strong at the end. I certainly wasn’t exhausted when the crash happened, but now everyone can recover. It wasn’t in my best interest.”

“I was fourth, so I knew if I could take a run and win a quick sprint, I would be fighting for the medals. In the end it didn’t work out. With that said, I am very satisfied with this tournament. Less round with two jerseys to go home.”

Young van den Bosch deserves 6th grade

On the young shoulders of Fabio van den Bosch there was a cautious hope for the medal, after his silver last year. He also started as the top talent at the age of 21 with distinction. After a very good match he won by scratch and immediately took the lead.

Van Den Bossche had excellent legs and also put himself in the spotlight in the tempo race. He remained in the lead with third place, and the chances of the medal increased.

Did our citizens feel pressured? In disqualification, the penultimate number, van den Bosch was repeatedly disqualified. The demon of bad luck was also lurking around the corner: after blown tires and changing bike, he completely lost his rhythm and eventually followed an early exit. With ninth place he fell to third place in the standings.

In the points race, our compatriot had to get the job done, but Van den Bosch couldn’t find the super-legs earlier in the day. After a nervous match he finally ran behind the facts. The gold went to Frenchman Grunden, and Van den Bossch finished sixth after a more than trustworthy Omnim.
