Day Five at the VELO Sports Center in Carson, Calif. sees 18 more National Champions awarded.

Carson, Calif. – The penultimate day of the 2019 USA Cycling Masters Track National Championships saw 18 more titles awarded and multiple riders adding to their week’s medal haul at the VELO Sports Center in Carson, Calif., on Saturday, August 31, 2019. Patricia Baker (Laguna Hills, Calif./Sisterhood of Cycling) continued her winning ways and recorded yet another World Record, her third of the championships.

“It feels fantastic. Going into this, I was very uncertain on how things were going to end up, and they’ve come together very well,” Baker said after her third win in the 80-84 age group of the week. “I want to show women that they don’t have to give up something they love doing just because they hit a certain age. The human body was meant to move, and if you keep it moving, it’s amazing how far you can take it.”

Baker’s third World Record of the week was set in the Women’s 80-84 Sprint 200-meter qualification with her time of 21.224. Also, in Women’s Sprint racing, Karen Purtill (Narragansett, R.I./Stedman’s/Meltsnow Racing) took gold in the 60-64 group.
