Viewers of Channel 4 early Sunday 6th April were treated to some great cycling action in the Women's gold medal final. Maxine Filby and Anna Glowinski lined up for the highlight race of the Mpora StreetVelodrome Manchester event.
Taking a short lead on lap 1 Maxine was soon overhauled by Anna by lap 2. But the gap didn't get any bigger than half a second. As the two friends off the bike crossed the line for the 3rd and final time they were just .2 of a second apart. Anna taking the Gold and Maxine the Silver.
Can't wait for the rematch during the StreetVelodrome Series 2014 later in the year.
