One last shot at the overall Omnium, collegiate athletes are hungry going into Day 3 of Collegiate Track Nationals.

INDIANAPOLIS, IN – Crowds packed the stands as day two was underway at the 2021 USA Cycling Collegiate Track National Championships at the Major Taylor Velodrome in Indianapolis, In. The day kicked off at 9:00 am with the Men's Pursuit Final.

Ian Anderson (Grand Junction, Colo.; Colorado Mesa University) was awarded the first title of the day! He completed his 4-kilometer Pursuit in a time of 4:39.820. The next race of the morning session was the Women's 500m Time-Trial, where Olivia Ray (New Zealand; SCAD-Atlanta) would go on to throw down a time of 36.758 and take the win. She also managed to take gold in the Women's Scratch Race, and Women's Sprint Final as well.

In the Men's Scratch Race, long-time bike racer Michael Hemmerlin (Indianapolis, In.; Marian University) took the win after a very explosive sprint to the line. Evan Boone (Grand Junction, Colo.; Colorado Mesa University) would go on to win the Men's Sprint Final.

"It feels great, with the build-up from yesterday to today there's been a lot of anticipation. With setting the collegiate track national record in the 200m Qualifier yesterday, I was really excited to get to the rounds and race today. I feel like it's been a long time coming," said Boone after being asked about how it feels to be a national champion.

With one more day to go, riders will need to give it everything they've got to seal the deal on the overall Omnium standings.
